Between a Rock and a Hard Place #HRFL13

Holland Dombeck McCue Worldwide FOT

This morning’s kick off keynote speaker at the  was Aron Ralston – the man who inspired the film “127 Hours.”  In 2003 while hiking in a canyon in southern Utah, Aron was pinned by a half-ton boulder for nearly a week in a remote three-foot-wide slot.  He 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.
