Perhaps the survivors featured in "The Indestructibles" were in the wrong place at the wrong time, but at least luck was on their side. Real-life accidents are deconstructed to reveal how victims were able to survive the seemingly unsurvivable ... a skydiver who falls three miles to the ground, a helicopter nosedives into a rooftop, a zoo keeper attacked by lions, a pedestrian run over by an SUV, and many more stories. Accounts from both the victims and eyewitnesses, plus detailed analysis and experiments from experts and investigators, help determine the scientific principles behind these cases that defy the laws of probability.

He'll climb buildings, get buried alive, catch arrows and fire a rifle blindfolded in front of stunned onlookers. But viewers will get to know him even better, witnessing the extraordinary processes Goodwin goes through behind the scenes as he trains intensively for his performances, many of which have never been attempted before.
