    Man amputates own leg to get free of fallen tree

    [size=12pt]66-year-old trapped for 11 hours uses pocketknives to cut leg below knee
    [/size]

    IOWA HILL, Calif. - Alone in the woods with his left leg pinned beneath a fallen tree for 11 hours, a 66-year-old man used pocketknives to cut off his limb below the knee to free himself, a neighbor and authorities said.

    Al Hill had been cutting trees last Friday when one fell on him. After freeing himself, he cried out for help, and a neighbor passing through this sparsely populated area heard him.

    Eric Bookey then hiked nearly two miles to get a cellular signal and placed an emergency call to the town's all-volunteer fire department about 7:30 p.m., Fire Chief Luana Dowling told The Associated Press on Wednesday.
    Reminds me of the story where a hiker in Utah did that same thing a few years ago after a rock fell on him.

    When you require nothing, you get nothing; when you expect nothing, you will find nothing; when you embrace nothing, all you will have is nothing.

    the utah guy cut off his arm and walked to a road where he found someone to help him out.

    this guy cuts off his legs and does what? stays right there screaming for help?

    he didn't need to cut his leg to do that. He could have just started screaming by punching himself in the sack.
