Product description

Emergency, dial 999. This DVD Reader presents four gripping real life emergency situations: a couple adrift on a rubber dinghy for three months on the Pacific Ocean; a school football team struck by lightning; a competitor in the Vendée Round the World Yacht Race lost at sea. Each life-threatening situation requires quick thinking and incredible bravery from those involved.

With DVD material from the BBC Motion gallery.

This compilation features 21 astonishing life-threatening emergency situations, which often call for hazardous and dangerous rescue operations. Most of the stories are reconstructions, but they chillingly convey the horror and reality of each incident. We are pleased to say that in all the cases in this compilation there was a safe ending for all involved. But each story is, nonetheless, a gripping and sometimes terrifying excursion into an emergency nightmare.
