Plot Synopsis

Using first-person interviews and archival footage, HEROES & SURVIVORS is a one-hour docuseries that re-tells stories of the worst weather bringing out the very best in people. In desperate situations, the heroic hand of a stranger may be the difference between life and death. But sometimes it's simply our superhuman spirit that keeps us alive. These are the stories of bravery and defiance from some of the most extreme, death-defying weather situations around the world. Each 60-minute episode features two stories, including: heroic state troopers who battle to save drivers -- and each other -- from imminent disaster on a frozen highway; one man who is lost, alone and miles from nowhere in the sweltering heat of the Arizona desert after an afternoon drive went horribly wrong; heroes who battle the cold and current of a terrifying flash flood to reach a couple on a date with disaster; a teenager digs too deep and ends up buried alive on a sunny day at the beach; and many more harrowing stories of survival from around the world.
On Sunday, July 8, 2018 at 8pm ET/PT, The Weather Channel premieres "Kayak Calamity & Helicopter Heroes," the season finale of HEROES & SURVIVORS. A band of brothers rescue one of their own from a watery grave; a helicopter team saves first responders caught in deadly seas.
