World's Scariest...

Series 1 - World's Scariest Near Misses

Jeff Boyles

Sorry, this episode is no longer available to watch on Demand 5.

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.

    Omgg this is actually quite frightening. But I'm happy the people survived. The footage makes it more realistic and thrilling. The shark one was probably the most scariest to watch!!!!

    BBC's iplayer is so much better, it will almost never cut the program in the middle, even if that happens it will restart from the exact point where it stopped, and best of all no annoying ads, that will come up here on demand5 every time the mouse cursor comes even near to the pause button!
