Two adventurers were dumped three miles off land into some of the most shark-infested waters on Earth and told to survive as long as they could.

James Glancy and Paul de Gelder parachuted out of a plane into the Pacific Ocean with nothing but their hands to ward off the thousands of sharks in the water below them.

They lasted 44 hours – two days and three nights – in an effort to recreate former president George H.W. Bush’s WWII nightmare when his bomber plane was shot down into the ocean before being rescued four hours later.

During the night time as the ex-military men tried to sleep, sharks would bump into them – and at one point a group of eight silky sharks surrounded them.
