Aron Ralston is the incredible man whose life-changing story inspired the film 127 Hours. After being pinned by a half-ton boulder for nearly a week in a remote three-foot-wide slot canyon in southern Utah, Ralston narrowly escaped death by severing his right forearm with a dull pocketknife. After applying a tourniquet, he hiked and rappelled for five hours through Blue John Canyon before searchers in a helicopter miraculously rescued him. A powerful inspirational speaker, Ralston touches the hearts of audiences nationwide through his tale of survival, tapping into the fundamental human experiences of facing and surmounting obstacles.
