Search On For Injured Wood Cutter

`Lyon County authorities were desperately looking for a woodcutter Thursday who reported possibly cutting his leg off with a chain saw before the cell phone connection died.

The man called 911 at 11:56 a.m. and said he may have cut his leg off and needed an ambulance, Sheriff’s Capt. Jeff Page said.

“He said he was dizzy, there was lots of blood, and then the phone went dead,” said Page, who listened to the taped call several times.

“He sounded pretty distressed; pretty shook up,” he told The Associated Press.

Dispatchers were unable to get the man’s location before the communication ended.’

Possibly cut his leg off? It doesn’t seem like there’s much room for speculation on the wood cutters part. Either the leg is off or it’s on. [shrug] 🙂
