  3. BBC Outlook - I cut off my own arm

    In 2003, the young American climber Aron Ralston made an incredible decision to cut his own arm off with a penknife. The story of his extraordinary survival has now been made into a Hollywood movie, directed by Danny Boyle, who won an Oscar for his film Slumdog Millionaire. The movie is called 127 Hours, reflecting the length of time that Aron spent alone in the canyon before making his miraculous escape. Aron spoke to Outlook’s Matthew Bannister from his home town of Boulder Colorado and told him, in detail, all about his extraordinary story of survival.
