I sw this article about a Washington fisherman who had to cut off his own fingers to survive.  Apparently his boat got caught in rapids and his hand ended up trapped between the boat and a log.

The real bummer of the deal is that help was actually just a few minutes away.  His fishing partner and future son-in-law had gone to get help and had almost returned.  I guess in that kind of situation, better to be safe than sorry.
