Professor John All fell 70 feet into an icy crevasse as he was hiking a Himalayan mountain. He had a broken arm, broken ribs, and was all by himself. It’s a story that feels like the premise to the survival drama 127 Hours — and indeed, All recorded every harrowing moment with his video camera.
“By taking the video, I was asserting to myself that I was going to get out so I could show it to my friends and family. Because I knew it was the type of thing that, you know, again, no one ever survives,” All said in an interview.
