Episode 3 – Terror in Paradise
On the island of Andros in the West Indies, tales of swimmers being ripped from the surface of the island’s mysterious blue holes have been attributed to a local monster known as the ‘Lusca’.
Described as half shark, half octopus with a taste for human flesh, it is said to drag its prey a thousand feet down to its deep water lair. When extreme angler, Jeremy Wade, travels to the tropical paradise to investigate, his search for answers takes him to dangerous new depths and closer than ever to a real killer.
