New To CBS Reality - The Day I Should Have Died
By James W, Monday 19th September 2016

The Day I Should Have Died is a compelling 10-part series that, each week, covers a different survivor’s grueling and harrowing tale of cheating death. The first episode tells the account of Gill Hicks, a survivor of the 7/7 London bombings.

Other survivor stories in the series will focus on escaping serial killers, shootings and natural disasters. Here's stories the first five episodes contain:

Gill Hicks – 7/7 London Bombings

On July 7 2005 Australian, Gill Hicks (pictured), lay trapped in what had once been a train carriage, but was now a blackened, smoke filled. The blood poured from her body, despite the scarf she had tied on each leg as a tourniquet to stem the flow. Gill was the last living person rescued. Defying doctors expectations, Gill survived, having lost both of her legs. Today Gill is the founder of the London­based not­for­profit M.A.D for Peace and is a motivational speaker for peace, author and curator.

Mo Lea – The Yorkshire Ripper

On the eve of her 21st birthday, Mo Le was attacked with a hammer and sharpened screwdriver by Peter Sutcliffe – The Yorkshire Ripper as she walked home.  The attack almost ruined Mo’s life leaving her with a broken jaw, a deep fracture on the top of her skull, fractured cheek bones, a deep cut over her left eye and two deep puncture wounds in the base of her neck that narrowly missed her spinal cord.  Mo now lectures art at Bedford University and donates 50% of the proceeds of her artwork to the charity Victim Support.

Steven Gault – Enniskillen Remembrance Day Bombings

Just a few days after his 18 birthday Steven Gault stood beside his father, Sammy Gault, a retired Royal Ulster Constabulary officer, at a Remembrance Day ceremony when a bomb exploded throwing Steven away from his father’s side. His father, along with 10 others, was killed instantly. Gault has been campaigning for years to get justice for his family and for the many other victims of violence during the Troubles.

Margaret Mountney – Peter Tobin

Peter Tobin married Margaret Mountney when she was 17, a whirlwind romance, after a year they separated. A few years later he married again, the marriage was violent and shortlived. Tobin then went on to meet Cathy Wilson and marry her at the age of 17.  The romance quickly descended to violence and rape. All three wives later gave accounts of falling for this well dressed psychopath who turned violent during their marriages.  Cathy was forced to watch as Tobin had violent sex sessions with young prostitutes. Only a 10­year stretch ­ for the abduction, rape and sexual assault of two teenage girls he had left to die in a gas­filled flat in Portsmouth, Hampshire ­ finally cut the tie he had maintained with Cathy and their son Daniel. He has since been convicted of the murders of three young women.   Today Margaret and Cathy provide each other with the support and understanding that only they could.

Caroline Langlade – The Bataclan Attacks

Trapped in a box of nine square metres, Caroline Langlade hid with 40 other people as ISIS gunmen opened fire in the Bataclan concert hall at the Eagles of Death Metal Concert in November 2015. Now Caroline runs Life for Paris an organisation which supports those survivors traumatised by the event.

The Day I Should Have Died starts October 1st at 8pm.
