Thinking this through - to do all this to yourself without passing out - gives me goosebumps. But he would be dead now if he didn't do it. A real survivor.

i guess nobody else would have the balls to break their own bones and cut your hand would f-word die in this place. But what makes me wonder is why he didnt bleed to death..cutting your hand off one hour makes you loose much blood..and after he was free he wasnt home yet..still some way to the next hospital.
But for sure he has the most strongest will to survive

#5 my thoughts exactly. How did he get out from that trench without one arm, exhausted, and loosing blood all the time?

#5 he used a "rope" to stop the bleeding. Also, he was lucky

Really nice upload YetiGrowl.
I'm looking forward to watch the movie. i saw the trailer and read some reviews and looks like it is simply amazing, and i have no doubt about since it was directed by Danny Boyle.
Some people even fainted at the movie theatres in the scene where he removes his arm. it was described as the most realistic ever put on film :|
So i'm expecting a memorable experience

*In my best Jigsaw Voice* "So Aron were going to play a game."
That is all I could think the entire explanation of how he got out.
Amazing story though. Only difference is when I go out, I have many knives I take and they are all Razor sharp. Including a Nice hatchet.

How sickened would you be if you got 90% of the way there and then dropped the knife...

5:50 "It was the happiest moment of my life"

We all may think that if we were in that situation we wouldn't have the guts to do that....but trust me it is in us all and you don't come face to face with how precious life is closer than this...

Warning? this story is anything but inappropriate, it should be inspiring.
