Lucky to be Alive (1 x 30)

Atlantic Canada has a rich maritime history and tragedy at sea has always been part of that legacy. Every coastal town and village has stories of vessels lost at sea with all hands. Even the most experienced seamen can fall victim to a disaster at sea including merciless weather conditions, running aground, or collisions with other ships. But there are also remarkable accounts of people who have come face to face with the ocean at its worst and managed to survive. 

Lucky to be Alive is a half hour documentary that shares amazing stories from people who narrowly escaped death at sea and the Coast Guard rescuers who risk their lives to save others. These courageous individuals provide their personal insight into what it’s like to brave the savage seas and live to tell the tale and the lasting emotional impact of these life-changing events.
