Happiest Moments

Two of the most moving videos I've seen in a long time. The first is the story of Aron Ralston, whom you may remember was a rock climber who cut off his own arm to escape a rock that had pinned him in an isolated area. The story is told by Ralston himself, standing in the original location, and he's clearly reliving the incident as he tells it. While obviously tragic, it is still amazing to hear Ralston's final perspective.

And to offset the macabre tone, here is a rare video of the birth of a baby elephant. The baby drops about three and a half minutes in. WARNING: This video is not for the faint of heart!
