National Geographic Presents 'World's Toughest Fixes' Season Two!

National Geographic Channel's "World's Toughest Fixes" featuring Sean Riley returns on Thursday, June 4 at 9pm eastern.

In the first episode of season 2, Riley heads down to the Big Easy to clear the Mississippi River of a 300-ton barge that was blown into the water from a local salvage yard by Hurricane Gustav in August 2008. 

The barge rammed into a protective levee that is now caught underneath the boat.  Using inflatable bags and wooden cribbing, the team carefully raises the barge
-- but the higher the barge goes, the more unstable it becomes.  And in one dramatic moment, the barge actually begins to slip ... as Riley, the workers and camera crew all race out from underneath to keep from being crushed!
