Find out why

Real-life stories of people who have stared death in the face - and lived to tell the tale. These close calls include a stunt pilot who lost a wing when his aircraft collided with another, giving him seconds to bail out before the plane hit the ground, the race to rescue a teenager buried under 6ft of sand on an LA beach and a ski-base jumper who broke every bone from her hips down when a stunt went horribly wrong. Plus, a shark turning the tables on a fisherman and a parachutist in a tangle after being hit by a flock of birds.
