Plot Overview

A daring rescue of a heart attack victim trapped on a raft in shark-infested waters makes the news, and an insufferable new member of the team takes all the credit. Trap, Thib and the newbie, Barry, all wind up on the Dinah Shore Show as a result, where Barry hijacks the spotlight. His boasting about sharks gets himself into a dangerous situation in a shark tank, and the team must perform one of their most perilous rescues yet. Also, a street gang causes havoc at an abandoned amusement park, and Trap and Thib must rescue a fellow deputy and an innocent girl who are hanging precariously from the top of a ferris wheel.
