Get Out Alive

Image 1 / 7

‘Get Out Alive' is a fascinating six-part series that tells some of the most amazing survival stories of modern times. Each episode follows the story of people who survived a major incident, despite the odds being stacked against them. The series opens with the tale of Michael Thexton who was a passenger on the hijacked Pam Am Flight 103 in 1986. Despite enduring hours with a gun to his head, and the death of 20 people around him, he miraculously escaped being shot. There are also insights into the plight of Blaine Mayhugh and John Phillippi who became trapped underground in the Que Creek mine and Jerel Shaffer who was kidnapped on a company fishing trip in Columbia.
