If you thought every action movie star was tough, wait until you hear what Roy Benavidez went through in just a few hours. After he and the unit he was serving in became suddenly surrounded by the North Vietnamese Army, he instinctively volunteered to run to the helicopter, all while being shot at, to help them find a landing zone so the other soldiers could escape.
After finding somewhere for the helicopter to land, he ran back to his unit. While running to his unit, he was shot in the leg, and a grenade went off right beside him launching shrapnel into his back. He convinced himself he was fine, and he just kept on running. He used a medic kit he brought from the helicopter to patch up a few of the wounded soldiers and they ran to the helicopter. Again, he was shot multiple times, and another grenade went off beside him.
The escape chopper crashed landed after the pilot was shot, and Benavidez dragged out all the injured, but alive, soldiers that were on the helicopter. After calling in numerous airstrikes, and fighting off a NVA soldier, who stabbed him in the bicep twice, Benavidez and the unit were rescued.
When the doctors saw Benavidez, they assumed he was dead! It wasn't until Benavidez was put in a body bag, when he spit blood in the doctor's face that the medical team tried to keep him alive! After a year of recovery, against all odds, Benavidez was released from the hospital.You HAVE to click the source and read the whole story!
