Episode Summary

Shockwave - 15
A speed boat is racing across a lake at more than 150 miles an hour. The pilot crosses the finish line, but the boat is not slowing down. The throttle is stuck wide open, the shore is rapidly approaching, and there is nothing the driver can do to stop it. The boat hits the beach full speed, is thrown 50 feet in the air, and then explodes when it flies into power lines. Extreme skier Garret Bartelt is racing down the most treacherous terrain imaginable near Valdez, Alaska when he catches an edge and is launched into a terrifying freefall. Eric drops a distance greater than the Trump Tower in New York, flipping over and over hitting jagged rocks all the way down. Those looking on in horror are sure the brutal beating from the unforgiving mountain has killed him. A runway ultra-lite is headed straight for a terrified crowd. It's running at full speed and there is no pilot on board. The crowd scatters but 13 year Mandy Bernar is crushed and driven into the ground by the nose of the plane as her grandfather watches on in horror. It's one of the most dangers moves a skateboarder can do, a full 360 degree loop. There are only about 15 people on the planet who can pull it off. It turns out that the subject of this catastrophe is not one of them.moreless
