Surviving catastrophe

Discovery Channel's series provide tips on how to survive any disaster, specially in the urban jungle



Wrecked And how to survive it

Discovery Channel brings two survival series: “Destroyed In Seconds” and “Worst Case Scenario”. From well-orchestrated implosions of massive structures to rampaging tornadoes and catastrophic mid-air collisions, “Destroyed In Seconds” presents some of the most shocking destructions captured on film. Hosted by Ron Pitts, the series explores the causes of catastrophe and discover how families and communities bounce back from such devastating events.

For most of us, being trapped in a scorpion-infested cave or getting lost in a Sahara desert would seem like our worst nightmare, while getting caught in potentially fatal situations in an urban jungle, less far-fetched. Most crises, however, arise close to home or in everyday life. “Man vs. Wild” host and survival expert Bear Grylls tackles urban survival and potentially deadly circumstances to provide tips in the new episodes of “Worst Case Scenario”.

Relying solely on the advice and instruction from experts, Bear escapes a multitude of deadly circumstances, proving that anyone equipped with the right knowledge and skills can survive even the worst of scenarios — from escaping a high-rise apartment fire and stopping a car with failed brakes, to fending off a shark attack and surviving a ride in a plunging elevator.

“Destroyed In Seconds” and “Worst Case Scenario” will be aired on the Discovery Channel at 10 p.m. and 10.30 p.m., respectively, starting this month.
