Man Amputates Leg with Pocket Knife After He's Trapped in Farm Equipment: 'I Just Started Sawing'
Kurt Kaser made headlines after using a pocket knife to saw off his own leg following a risky accident with machinery on his island.
Kaser was moving corn from one bin to another when he said he accidentally stepped into a small hole in a grain hopper (a device created to deposit grain in a bin), which seized his leg and began pulling him into the machine.
"Finally, it let go, and then I started crawling to the house". He wasn't sure how long he'd stay conscious. Figuring this was his best chance for escape, he pulled out his 3-inch pocket knife and sawed through the remaining tissue and freed himself.
The 63-year-old said he could remember telling himself "this ain't good, this is not good at all" as he tried and failed to pull his leg out.
The first to arrive was his son, Adam, a member of the local rescue squad, the Omaha World-Herald reported early Wednesday.
Mr Kaser said he had removed a safety covering at the end of the auger in the winter to make the equipment fit under a grain bin, and told ABC News he was "kind of disappointed in myself that I didn't think of fixing that thing".
"I was in a hurry and didn't pay attention", he said, hoping his story can serve as a warning to other farmers. I was afraid it was going to suck me in more.

"I didn't have a phone on me, I didn't know where it had gone, so I just started cutting with the knife", Kaser told the station. I don't want to give up'.
The farmer spent weeks in hospital and rehabilitation before returning home to Pender near the Iowa border on Friday.
Kaser undergoes physical thearpy to get stronger after losing his leg.
