7. Aron Ralston
Now this story might ring a few bells, especially if you’re a James Franco fan. Made famous by the movie 127 Hours, Ralston literally survived cutting his own arm off. Ralston was struck down by a boulder that pinned him to a rock for you guessed it, 127 hours. Delirious, dehydrated and desperate Ralston eventually resorted to snapping his arm and hacking it off with a dull blade. Also, you have to feel a little bad for the park rangers who had to retrieve his severed arm…that is never a fun job.
