50 years ago Jack and Betty were hit by a train and survived. This is their story.

While on a trip to Cape May New Jersey in 1971, Jack and Betty survived an accident that not many other humans have...they were hit by a train. Not only did they survive, but their 4-year-old son, infant daughter, and elderly Mother survived the crash as well. 50 years later, they return to the scene of the accident to recount their conflicting memories.
