Episode Summary

EDIT
I Am Alive: Surviving the Andes Plane Crash
AIRED:
On Friday the 13th of October 1972, a charter plane carrying 45 rugby team members crashed in the remote Andes Mountains. For 72 days, the world thought they were dead. But what 16 survivors endured was far worse than death, driven to what would become headline-making acts of cannibalism in their struggle for life. I Am Alive: Surviving the Andes Plane Crash presents one of the most remarkable human survival stories of all time as it has never been told before: through the first person, on-camera account of survivor Nando Parrado. Nando's simple, yet powerfully evocative storytelling allows viewers to experience the nearly two and half months of heroism and tragedy through the eyes and memories of the man who lived it. A window for viewers into the history of other stories of extreme survival, Nando's account is accompanied by new, high-resolution imagery of photos shot by the survivors throughout their ordeal, rarely seen footage of the crash site, as well as blended CGI/live action re-creations of the crash itself and the amazing struggle for survival that followed.moreless
