I hav no idea how people can be normal after dealing with this kind of thing all day. My hats is taken off to them.

Well, I have known people with sticks up their asses before, but...

(I sure hope this is Photoshopped, otherwise my comment is WAY out of line. :()

Looks real enough to me. Look at the discoloration of the left leg, consistent with lack of blood flow to the extremity.

This is exactly why I don't work IN emergency departments, etc., but just transcribe their reports AFTER they've done their business!

i am with allee on this,, i do believe this is real.. it most assuredly could happen given the right set of extenuating circumstances... wow.. how do you live thru something like that??? no clue.

It certainly appears to be real..but my question, while most likely completely inappropriate, is what was he doing with the log to begin with???

I've seen this pic several times. Being a nurse that worked trauma. I love this stuff. I know I'm sick.
It is real ... something to do with a boat accident, I remember. And thankfully this guy did recover. Nothing short of a miracle.

I've seen this one a few times... still find it hard to look at.
I'm outta here!

This one has been around a while.

Yes, it's real. It was a boating accident, as I recall. Supposedly the guy eventually recovered, albeit after a LOT of time and therapy.

Funny thing is, it was first sent to me by a male ER nurse a few years ago, who wanted to know..."Is it just me, or is the female nurse on this pic smokin' hot?"

Hey, I'm a medic,...but I'm still a guy. ;)

AD - Yes...I was thinking the same thing! A Caption ...Harvey had a serious woody everytime he saw Monique the lustful nurse. hahahahaha

Dawn...coming back I hope? Hate to scare away readers.

Joni - Demented for sure...

Weird - Umm..somethings are better left unexplained

Alle and Paisley - My thoughts exactly. Damn lucky guy to have survived

CMK - We are not PC here...you know that! lol

Forest - Me too. Much respect to them all.
