Trapped Nebraska farmer cuts off leg with pen knife

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-48278319

Now you might not have plans to hike the Nebraska corn fields, but as soon as you read the first word your mind went immediately to the Canyonlands.  And if you ever need to perform open heart surgery on the trail, there's a YouTube video that shows how.   wink.gif

Actually there's a pen knife app for iOS, so you don't have to carry one after all.

I heard a story of someone locallly who lost a lower arm while using an auger to dig post holes for telephone pole sized posts. Don't ever operate an auger with loose-fitting clothes; that's what grabbed this individual, and perhaps the farmer also.

OSCEOLA, IAóIn an attempt to show how much he had in common with the audience at a campaign event on an Iowa farm, Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker tried to connect with rural voters Friday by deliberately mangling his hand in a grain auger.
