Faith, determination and human spirit abound in "Fight to Survive," which recounts stories of people's deadly ordeals in the outdoors. Accompanying survivors back to where harrowing events occurred is rock-climber Craig DeMartino, who is featured in the premiere episode. His right leg was amputated below the knee after a climbing accident, but he continued in his sport. In 2006 he became the first amputee to free-climb the 3,200-foot face of Yosemite's El Capitan in one day. Other stories tell of sailor Steven Callahan clinging to a raft in the Atlantic, fisherman Dean Ririe trapped by a boulder in icy water, and hiker Ted Porter falling into a glacial crevasse.
