63-year-old Kurt Kaser is a Nebraska farmer who last month amputated his leg with a pocket knife to survive, after being trapped in a corn hopper. The guy was working alone, moving corn from one place to another, when he stepped into the «little hole» of the hopper when he got off his truck. He just swallowed my leg, I tried to pull it out, «said KETV, local ABC partner in the city of Omaha.» I almost gave up once and just said ‘ the devil ‘ with that… And then I felt that (the machine) was pulling me back. I thought I was sucking, «Kaser added. He was convinced that his only option was to «cut it» using the little knife in his pocket. » So, I started sawing, «he counted. After completing the task to save his life, Kaser was freed and crawled to his house to ask for help, the media said. The first to arrive was his son, Adam, a member of the local rescue patrol, detailed the local newspaper Omaha World-Herald this Wednesday. After a week in the hospital and two more in rehab, Kaser returned home on Friday, optimistic that he will walk again, added the diary. I was in a hurry and I didn’t pay attention, he said, in the hope that his story will serve as a warning to other farmers. The media showed Kaser in a wheelchair, with his left leg amputated under the knee.
