ORDINARY PEOPLE SURVIVING EXTRAORDINARY EXPERIENCES,
ON "LIVE TO TELL," AIRING ON "20/20," FRIDAY, JULY 17 ON ABC
From three identical sisters pulled from a burning bed when they were toddlers to two thrill-seeking brothers tempting fate together to a woman who survived a freak accident only to be told she has cancer, "20/20" reports on harrowing ordeals and astonishing escapes. "Live to Tell" airs on "20/20," FRIDAY, JULY 17 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Identical 22-year-old Texas triplets Chandra, Jordan and Trae Berns are reminded of their harrowing ordeal every time they look in the mirror � being burn victims in a fire that engulfed their home and killed their mom when they were just 17 months old. "20/20" is with them as they take a momentous step to try and erase a past that has left its mark physically and emotionally. Deborah Roberts reports.
And: Sean and Mike Lenahan, a cancer survivor and his brother, made a pact to do "something adventurous," but got much more than they bargained for while participating in the annual running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain. Bill Ritter reports on surviving a very close call.
Plus: Sometimes an unthinkable setback can be a blessing in disguise. No one knows this better than Ellin Klor, 56, who survived an incredibly random accident after being impaled in the heart with a knitting needle. She thought it was the worst thing that ever could happen to her. But an unexpected twist would turn it into one of the luckiest days of her life. Elizabeth Vargas reports.
"20/20" is anchored by Elizabeth Vargas and John Stossel. David Sloan is executive producer.
