This is the picture impression of the incident drawn by Abdullah Jones although I would have prefered a further close-up of the mangled hand! Thank you AJ. Please click on the image to go the original link for a better close-up.
This is my version of the mutilated hand
Just a brief update. It's a case I got at the clinic today. A lady, white, foreign (her name sounds Russian, Irina something) cook on board a ship somewhere few kilometers away from Kuantan coast-line, was preparing a meal. Sometime at 9 am she was using the blender and probably tried adjusting it whilst the blade was still roatating. Caught her right hand into the moving blades and brrrrrrr, zap-zap, !@#$%$#@ all her fingers got crushed by the rotor, up to the metacarpo-phalangeal junctions!
Only after 6 long hours, did they manage to get her ashore! When I saw her, the badly severed fingers were dangling loosely looking so gorily mortified! The crushed tissue was a mess of pieces of skin, chopped bones, sliced finger nails, cut tendons and muscle all mangled up.
Couldn't do much except dress it up, bandaged and iced. She needed emergency hand surgery which in this case due to the severe mutilation, nothing much could be saved. The best for her would be for total amputation of all the fingers leaving a clean stump. Thus I refered her to the nearest orthopedician. Will enquire from him later what his management was.
Throughout the incident, she was shouting in pain, in fact she was wailing. Tried to empathise but she was rather rude and dismissed my words denying that I understood her pain. Well, I'm sorry for her anyway.
p.s. my clinic girls were telling me after that "doctor tak nampak ke dia pakai sexy habis? nampak semua!' "Entah saya tak nampak pon' said I, too engrossed with the crushed hand to notice aything!
Note: this update was deemed necessary as the Kuih Kochis were fermenting into tapai already!!! (not that I mind, as tapai is my favorite dessert!)
