Two pairs of strangers are dropped in the Bermuda Triangle with one goal: survive on a life raft with no food or water. Episode Four: To the Bone On the orange raft, professional sailor Ceci Hindley is teamed up with a true fish out of water, Dan Eller. Ceci soon comes through for her raftmate, catching and gutting a triggerfish, and the duo decides to make a fire to cook their catch. But while Dan lights the fire, Ceci cuts open her finger. With the fire burning out of control, and Ceci's finger gushing blood, the orange raft faces serious peril. On the yellow raft, former NFL linebacker David Vobora and former police officer Jackie Person appear to be a promising team. But the constant wetness and frigid nights prove to be nearly unmanageable for Jackie, who begs David to let her tap out. With a partner on the verge of submission, David puts all his energy toward catching a fish, and his body soon wears down. While diving underwater, he endures a paralyzing leg cramp, and finds himself flailing for his life in the open ocean. (From the US) (Documentary Series) PG Follow the conversation on Twitter: #SBS2
