One Decision Can Be The Difference Between Life or Death on WHO SURVIVES?
-- All New One-Hour Special Premiering on Discovery Channel Thursday, July 28 at 10 PM --
Trapped on a mountain, no sense of direction, horrible weather conditions, and limited food and water supply... what do you do? In such extreme situations, every decision - no matter how seemingly minor - plays a significant role between survival and death.
Discovery Channel's new one hour special WHO SURVIVES? showcases two similar survival cases. Re-enactments and factual testimony portray two very REAL events that put people in extreme cases of wilderness survival. So what's the catch?... Only one person survives.
The show takes viewers on a step-by-step journey of two different hikers, tracking the decisions they made to weather the treacherous wilderness and deal with unforeseen conditions. Accompanied by life-saving tips, facts about how to handle nature's harsh and unpredictable conditions, and important insights into the human body's capabilities and limits, WHO SURVIVES? is an intense and compelling special that provides a unique glimpse into life or death situations. The show also features interviews with search and rescue team members from these events, as well as emotional accounts from the hikers' friends and family.
