Wasn`t there a guy a few years back that cut his own arm off with a pocket knife? I think he was caught in an avalanche.

I gotta say I would NOT have the balls to do that.

It`s amazing the lengths people will go to for their own survival. I couldn`t imagine the horror of that type of situation.

So was it 3 days or 12 hours? Makes a big damn difference. 3 days could be gangrene, 12 hours was probably mercaptan.

I have to agree with crabcakes. (I don`t think I`ve ever typed that sentence before). It`s one thing if you are just chillin there, but if you smell rotting flesh, it`s a very bad sign.

I heard it was even less time. But I dunno~ If it actually was 3 full days, I understand cutting your arm off, cause otherwise you could be waiting til you die of dehydration. But 18, 12, 7 (which is what I heard) hours? Too soon >.<

That would require some intense ability. I just might be able to do it, but I`d prefer not to ever have to try.

I heard this story on a radio show, there are actually parts they didn`t say in this video.

First of all, he was stuck there for 12 hours until he decided to cut off his arm, 6 hours later (18 hours in) he started cutting off his arm until he hit a point where an exceptional amount of blood came out and stopped. When the rescue team finally came a bit later, his arm actually fell off while they were rescuing him. Pretty much meaning he didn`t have to cut his arm, and loose it.

Now what I think is really ridiculous, is that this man had a dog, fiance, near-by family, yet he still chose to cut off his own arm just 18 hours in. Infections can be cured through anti-biotics, over-all (in my opinion) it was stupid for him to cut off his arm when obviously help would of come soon. He wasn`t lost in the arctic, he was in his own home`s basement.

Straight up, if I could smell my own flesh beginning to rot, bet your ass I`d CHEW it off if I had to.

Once gangrene sets in and gets into your system, you can very easily get a blood infection, which would almost certainly prove fatal.

I may pass out a dozen times from the pain, but I have no doubt in my mind that if it comes down to ANY limb or my life, I`ll be short an appendage, but alive!

That reminds me of that dude that was hiking and got his arm stuck under a boulder, but he actually DID get his arm off. Incredible how he described it. I think that somebody posted it on IAB a while ago, but I can`t remember what it was called. I`d definitely like to hear it again, though.

He`d already been trapped past the time they can let you be trapped without your body developing toxins that would kill you off.

Either way, that`s balls out >.< I couldn`t do it.

Daaaaaammmmnnnn...

I would have at least tried to find something to just quickly lop it off instead of trying to saw it off... Sure, the bone might have given me a bit of trouble, but still...

On a semi-related note, I got my first real injury in years yesterday, lol.
