Episode Summary

Shockwave - 26

An EF 3 twister bears down on a pig farm in Oklahoma at close to 200 miles an hour. Six workers huddle inside with 5 thousand pigs and piglets as the monster hits and tears the farm apart. A motorcycle enthusiast is trying out his new motorcycle on an empty highway just south of San Francisco. He's trying a few tricks on his new bike, his friend screams for him to watch out for the one parked car on the three mile stretch of road but the biker is deaf an can't hear the warning. At the last minute he loses control of his bike and slams into the parked car in one of the most terrifying crashes ever caught on tape. A crew is taping a cable television show on Lake Pontiac Michigan, but there is trouble in the air. A small plane starts to sputter, it stalls and then comes crashing down in the middle of the lake. A 12 year old boy dangles by the neck 30 feet in the air off of a ski lift. A strap from his back pack is strangling him as his best friend watches helplessly in horror. Two Base jumpers Richard Burke and Ron Broyles, self-proclaimed adrenaline junkies, attempt to jump off the Golden Gate Bridge. The two take the breathtaking plunge but their chutes get tangled and they're caught on the bridge dangling hundreds of feet in the air. A fuel truck is T-boned by a freight train. The truck is flipped on it's side, gas is leaking out and a fire is starting to burn. A news helicopter hovers as a young boy races to the wreck, then suddenly the tanker erupts into a massive fireball.
