Watch as a fire captain sends his son into a burning house--it erupts into a massive fireball trapping the young man inside. Next a dragster driver is stuck in the roll cage after the vehicle breaks in half, then it slams into a wall and erupts in flames. Cameras are rolling as a suicide bomber takes dead aim at a Hum-Vee transporting six marines. Then Jake Brown, a skateboard champion, takes a fall from fifty feet up--the impact is so violent that it literally blows off his shoes. While filming a video about a devastating avalanche, a Turkish folksinger and his crew are buried alive under a mountain of snow in the same area that had been devastated two years prior. Finally a desperate father is faced with leaving his two sons in danger of drowning--or go under himself.
