It’s Stuck in My Arm (or Foot)

Written by Tad. Posted in Kooks

A 35-year-old man was working for a tree trimming service. He was chipping tree branches when the chipper kicked back at him. A two-foot long palm frond impaled his right forearm. The medics transported him with the palm frond carefully fixed in the position in which they found it. He was taken to the operating room to remove it then clean and repair the wound.

 

A 46-year-old ironworker was building a rebar wall when it collapsed under him. He ended up pinned under a twisted pile of rebar with a one-inch diameter rebar piercing his right biceps. The medics cut the rebar off on both ends and transported him with it carefully fixed in the position in which they found it.

When he got to the emergency department, he was soaking wet from the water the medics used to keep the rebar cool as they cut it. He was taken to the operating room to remove it then clean and repair the wound.

 

A middle-aged man was working on his car when it fell off the jacks and threw a tire iron, driving it into the palm side of his wrist and out the back of his hand. The medics transported him with the tire iron carefully fixed in the position in which they found it. He was taken to the operating room to remove it then clean and repair the wound.

 

A 3 year-old boy stepped on a small metal toy rocking chair. One of the rockers stuck into his foot. His family freaked out and called 911. The medics transported him with the rocking chair carefully fixed in the position in which they found it. I easily pulled it out and sent him home.
