People overcome impossible odds where others surrendered and failed. What would you do if you were stranded or trapped in a situation where you had to fight for your life? When the Worst Happens is a collection of intense, true stories set in distant corners of the earth. • After a fierce storm, the crew of the Polaris was stranded on an ice floe in the Arctic Ocean. • A massive cave-in traps 19-year-old Jimmy Sanchez and 32 other Chilean miners deep below the earth. • Twelve-year-old Bala and his two sisters must survive on a tiny island off the Australian coast after their boat capsizes. • When her plane crashes in the Peruvian jungle, 17-year-old Juliane struggles to find help. In extreme situations such as these, people can pull together, show almost super-human skill, and survive. But sometimes they face madness, greed or mutiny. These action-packed accounts reveal the critical decisions that determined the fate of each victim.
