“Counting Blessings” from the Today show tells a story of a man who was trapped for six days and was forced to cut off his own arm to survive, this shows how people can come to great lengths to survive. The man was climbing a canyon when his arm was trapped by a massive bolder. The climber admits to having a vision of a child that he assumed was his. The man also says that this image of a child was what got him through the tough actions he had to do. This is not the only story where people have had images or internal motivations that give them the will to survive. There will always be incredible stories of survival.
