Thursday night got involved helping a friend unload a semi trailer of restaurant equipment, I had a skid steer with forks so thats what we got it out with. There was six of us working, one guy climbed in the back of the trailer to help the other two put a heavy piece on a pallet, when he was climbing down he had one hand on the hand grip on the skid steer and the other hand on the foot step on the forks. On the way down he kind of jerked then when he was on the ground he was holding his hand and showing me, his ring finger got caught on the foot step and ripped all but off, only thing holding it was a little skin and cartilage. They took him to the hospital cleaned it up then took him to a Louisville hospital for hand treatment, they kept him over nite and had surgery on Friday, they was not able to save the finger. I have always heard about people losing fingers by rings getting caught on something, pretty scary. Thats the reason I don't wear my wedding ring. Think about that, it don't take but a split second for your hand to get caught, pretty scary, plus painful.
