U.S trapped farmer dismembers leg using pen knife

Kurt Kaser

A United States farmer has cut his own leg off with a pen knife after his foot slipped into a grain auger.

He was forced to dismember his lower leg with a 3in (7.6cm) pen knife and drag himself to the nearest phone for assistance.

After a week in the hospital and two weeks in rehab in a clinic, he had been on Friday dismissed.

Mr Kaser said he could not pull his leg out and did not have his phone or anyone around to call for help at the farm in Pender, Nebraska, in the US. "I thought, well, I was going in". The Farmer from the US state of Nebraska may have escaped a painful death, "he would have done the": to amputate his own leg with a pocket knife. "They're going to grab me and pull me in further, '" he said. "When I was cutting it, the nerve endings, I could feel them just ping every time when I'd start sawing around that pipe, and all at once it went and let me go, so I got the heck out of there", Kaser said.

"He pretty much told me his goal was, 'I need to get home and get back to what I was doing before, ' and his main goal was farming", she recalled to KETV.

Kaser said he was afraid he'd pass out but he made it.

After he cut himself free from the corn hopper, Kaser crawled to his house about 150 feet away and called 911.

"Everyone asks me why I am so calm about the situation and the truth is, when I was in Madonna (the rehabilitation hospital), I saw so many people who will probably never be able to walk again and I know I will be able to walk mildly normal, I'm fortunate".

"It is what it is", Kaser says.

He said it's not the first time he's gotten his leg stuck in an auger, explaining that a few years ago one injured his right leg. The married father of three grown children said he has been meeting with doctors to determine when he can get a prosthetic leg. Some [other patients] won't ever get out of their wheelchairs.
