Plot Synopsis

Using first-person accounts, dramatic re-creations and real-life footage, THE DAY I ALMOST DIED reveals how anyone, at any time, can fall victim to a fatal self-inflicted injury. From falling off a boat only to be sucked under the motor to getting nearly crushed by a big rig -- these are just a few of the shocking true stories told by accident victims, friends and family, witnesses, doctors, and first responders. Each 60-minute episode features three true stories including: a mom who sends a text while driving and wakes up with a guardrail through her car; a young woman who, while partying with friends, falls off of a boat into a spinning propeller; a professional sword swallower who nearly makes the ultimate sacrifice while performing; a farmer's arm gets stuck in a corn picker, grinding up his hand in the middle of a cornfield; a woman whose home project to build a new roof turns into a nightmare as doctors try to save her life; a young man whose life changes in an instant on a California beach when he goes swimming; and many more people who almost accidentally killed themselves.
