"Why would that woman ask if there was serious bleeding?
He's been saying the entire time that his arm is cut off... there's gonna be some blood!"

Her job is to try to help him stay calm and out of shock. She is asking him simple questions to calm him down and try to distract him somewhat from what just happened (kinda pointless on something this big but worth a shot), I'm sure she knew there was a lot of blood and was just trying to do her job....or she is a complete moron, which is quite possible.

"When faced with a choice of starving to death or cutting his own arm off, the climber bravely took the more painful option to save his life. If thats not good enough for you then whatever, but it takes a hero to do something like that. Anyone else would cry and say 'oh theres nothing I can do now...it's my time to go'."

So if someone killed one of their friends and ate them because he was starving to death in the rocky mountains he would be a hero because he "bravely took the more painful option to save his life"? Just because you do something desperate, it doesn't make you a hero. Survival brings out the most uncivilized and inhuman qualities of a person, either for better or for worse.

<i>Nobody else was on the site at the time.</i>

You're alone, greasing up a machine, and suddenly it sucks you in like that?

Man...I'd be dead.

"Getting yourself into a situation where the only way out is to cut off your arm is not heroic. It's not like he saved someone else's life. He's a moron for getting in that situation (no one knowing where he was, etc.) in the first place."

Not if he placed a tourniquet first...that would subdue a lot of the bleeding.

This guy's a Knock-off Nigel though I'm afraid. You'll never beat the rock climber who had to cut his arm off with a penknife. Hero.

Oh, and just an after-thought(sorry):
I actually know a guy who's dad got his arm caught in a tractor, and had to cut it off. And then wasn't there that climber guy who wrote the book about cutting off his own arm? Or was it a leg?

He sounds like when a little kid gets hurt, and they start hyperventilating(sp?), and they can barely talk. It was rather frustrating for me when that happened as a child, 'cause I'd almost pass out from not breathing right. I can only imagine how frustrating it would be for him as a grown man.

Did anybody catch at the bottom of the article it is said, "His name is not being released right now," however, the victim IS named further up in the piece? "His son said Robert Kerstetter, 52, was greasing a machine at 4:30 a.m. Wednesday when his right arm got caught in the machine."
