Episode Summary

Shockwave - 19
A member of the most elite squad of the US Air Force crashes into a fireball, and there is no sign of the pilot. The terror on the tarmac is caught by one camera in the control tower, and another inside the cockpit. A skydiver is making his first jump tethered to his instructor, but when he pulls his chute the cords wrap around his instructors neck. Now they are in a freefall and the instructor is out cold. Their seconds away from crashing to earth and their only hope is another skydiver who is desperately trying to catch them and pull their reserve chute. A longtime stuntman/daredevil is performing his signature stunt for a crowd in his backyard and disaster strikes. Texas Jack Hondo stands on three sticks of dynamite with only a thick metal plate and the soles of his cowboy boots to protect him. He's preformed the stunt hundreds of times, but this time the explosion could cost him his life. Heavy snowfall has left a dangerous threat of an avalanche in Colorado. Authorities, trying to manage the snow, are dropping bombs in the ridge above to keep a natural disaster from happening. But one of the man made avalanches takes a deadly turn and buries a reporter and his cameraman covering the story. It's a race to the finish line and one Jet Ski racer comes crashing down on another. The 650 pound Jet Ski lands right on top of the rider crushing him and sending him flying. A racecar driver erupts into a fireball when his car crashes into a pileup on the track. Rescuers rush in to put him out, but the fire extinguishers are all out of foam. He drops and rolls on the track to put himself out, but he's rolling in high flammable racing fuel.moreless
