Manage episode 240220717 series 2466775
Spencer Stone is a former United States Air Force staff sergeant, who has faced two near-death experiences in his life, both of which he survived against insurmountable odds.
Life sometimes hands us difficulties, and, in rare occasions, it hands us unbelievable, “I’m gonna die” events that require us to go beyond anything we’ve ever had to do to survive. Spencer Stone has endured such events. From subduing a heavily armed terrorist on a Paris-bound high-speed train, to defending the honor of a young lady, resulting in being beaten and stabbed repeatedly by a gang – and living to tell about it.
Spencer gives the harrowing details of both of those incidents in this weeks episode, the first of which was made into a motion picture by director Clint Eastwood.
