Man Guillotines His Own Arm


BELLINGHAM, Wash. — A man who entered a Bellingham medical office with a severed limb later told medics he cut his own arm off with a self-made device.

Police said the man walked into a urology office in the Birchwood neighborhood at 11 a.m. Thursday. His right arm had been severed below the shoulder.

Employees from the clinic called for an ambulance and police.

Investigating officers searched a nearby homeless camp where the man was believed to live and found the severed arm and a self-made guillotine.

The arm was transported to the hospital in the hopes it could be reattached.

    I’m not trying to be harsh, but is it really the best use of our tax dollars to re-attach his arm? He wanted it off. He’s not insured (we can assume). Sew him up and let him go on his way. One arm lighter, but maybe a few ounces smarter.
