Krishna Thompson saw the fin, felt the chomp and felt himself being pulled underwater. His first thought? "I can`t believe there`s a shark on my leg!" Held hostage by a bank robber, Paul Hardy grabbed the gun and fought for his life ("He started biting my hand and arm; money was flying everywhere). Peter Beard couldn`t outrun a stampeding elephant ("Her tusk went right through my thigh"), Marc Dupavillion`s sloop was no match for a 70-foot wave (The boat just lifted out of the water and got slammed on its side) Edna Wilks wishes she hadn`t gone swimming that night in Florida ("I saw the alligators head; I didnt have time to scream). From shark bites and lightning strikes to tidal waves, tornadoes, a deadly Mount Everest blizzard, a mountain lion attack, Pearl Harbor, the Titanic and a 14,000-foot fall without a parachute, PEOPLE`s Amazing Stories of Survival presents the best I-was-there, here`s-what-it-felt-like, I-can`t-believe-I-lived-through-it tales from the magazine`s first thirty years.
