5 Survival Stories
Almost As Metal As 127 Hours

This month’s 127 Hours is an unbelievable real-life tale of wilderness survival. And so are these five true stories that don’t have their own movies — but should.

By Zack Zeigler

There are two things you need to know before you go see the new movie 127 Hours. One, James Franco cuts off his own arm with a dull blade … on purpose. And two, it’s based on a true story.

Back in 2003, Aron Ralston was hiking through Utah’s Blue John Canyon when a dislodged boulder fell on his right forearm, crushing and pinning it against a canyon wall. For five days, he tried to move the boulder with no success. So in a last-ditch attempt to avoid death, he took out his cheap multi-use tool and started cutting.

The mere thought of that causes our testicles to retract back into our bodies — we would no doubt welcome the sweet release of death in a survival situation like that — but nevertheless, we love real-life tales of survival. (It’s much like hot Scandinavian VCR-porn clips in that way.) So we gathered some of our favorite stories of wilderness survival
