On the latest episode of "I Survived" (Sun., 10 p.m. ET on Biography), Jim and Ellen shared their incredible story of survival at sea.
They were sailing in the Caribbean on their yacht Boldy Go when they were attacked by gun-toting pirates.
As the pirates ransacked the yacht, Ellen survived the ordeal by playing dead. "I completely hunched over my bent knees and completely made my body into a rag doll on the floor and breathed out," she said.
Fooled into thinking she was in a coma, the pirates fled with all the couple's valuables, including the yacht's GPS navigation system.
