- Ever watched someone have an emergency?
Yes, i did watch somebody rip off his finger on a fence. He got stuck with his finger ring ont the fence and then jumped down the other side. People were getting ice cubes from a nearby store quickly. The person was under shock of course (under the influence of drugs produced by his own body). As far as i know it was possible to sew his finger back on ,because he was being brought to hospital quick enough.
