Man Amputates Leg with Pocket Knife After He's Trapped in Farm Equipment: 'I Just Started Sawing'

Farmer sawed off leg with pocket knife to save his own life

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.

"But that's why they call it accidents I guess".

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.
