Tragedy strikes on Treasure Quest: Snake Island this week — as Discovery airs an extra-exciting episode as part of their Mega Week.
As usual the drama focuses around survival and security Brett Tutor, who joined the Treasure Quest team this season.
Watch two clips from tonight’s episode, in which Brett not only suffers a fall while rock climbing — but also faces peril after jumping into a raging river to try and rescue a backpack containing vital research.
Tonight’s “Mega” Treasure Quest episode sees tragedy unfold as the team make their way to a Guarani village, as they continue the search for $400m of Inca gold.
They meet with village elders, who give them vital information about where to locate a special stone which can help guide them.
But as ever when hunting treasure in the thick of the jungle, drama meets them every step of the way.
