A man from Bellinham, WA had his arm chopped off by a self made guillotine at a camping site where he was living. The man left his arm behind at the scene to find help and somehow ended up at an clinic for urology.
A woman claimed that the scene during his arrival was bloody and gory , but even one person reportedly said “I hope that’s a Halloween costume”. An ambulance took him to a nearby hospital where he is currently in serious condition and there is no word if the arm was able to be re-attached. The arm was lost just above the elbow.
