In 2003, Aron Ralston's story made headlines worldwide. After being pinned by a half-ton boulder for nearly a week in a remote three-foot-wide slot in a canyon in southern Utah, Ralston narrowly escaped death by severing his right forearm with a dull pocketknife. After applying a tourniquet, he hiked and rappelled for five hours before searchers in a helicopter miraculously rescued him.
