An Animal Saved My Life

Thursday, July 2 at 8 p.m. ET/9 p.m. PT

This series shows the lengths to which animals will go to save humans – even total strangers. These emotional and awe-inspiring tales feature such stories as dolphins rescuing a surfer from a great white shark, an elephant saving a young girl during the Tsunami in Thailand, a dog rescuing his owner during the Katrina disaster and a gorilla saving a young child who fell into a dangerous pen in the zoo. One story per half hour is told using first person interviews, bold re-enactments and experts who contextualize the animals’ behaviour.
