(LOS ANGELES) - In the digital age, the camera catches everything. Phones and recording devices have become a necessity, ready and waiting to capture unforgettable moments, both good and bad.

Now, survival stories caught on camera will be revealed on STILL ALIVE, an all-new series premiering Wednesday, September 14, at 10 PM ET/PT on the Discovery Channel.
Trapped in an avalanche, chased by a bear, hit by a tornado or stalked by a shark; all stories one might need to see to believe. STILL ALIVE shares these amazing survival stories and others from those who stood at the threshold between life and death, and also happened to capture that moment with a digital eyewitness.

In every thrilling, heart-stopping one-hour episode, viewers will step into the shoes of survivors as they recount their terrifying experiences. Watch adventurers escape a flash flood, feel the adrenaline rush of a sky diver whose parachute malfunctions and see through the eyes of fisherman menaced by giant sharks.
