Nebraska farmer caught in grain auger uses pocket knife to sever what's left of his leg

(05-15-2019, 12:21 PM)FlyoverCountry Wrote: A man who farms near Pender, Nebraska, went to extraordinary lengths to save his life after his left leg became trapped in a machine on his farm.

In the early afternoon of April 19, Kurt Kaser, a lifelong corn, soybean and hog farmer, was transferring grain from one bin to another when he stepped into a grain auger. The machine ate away at his left leg and sucked the 63-year-old toward the machine.

“I didn’t know what to do,” he said Tuesday. “I was afraid it was going to suck me in more. I about gave up and let it do what it was going to do.”

Kaser was alone on the farm that day. His cellphone either fell into the machine or fell out someplace else. On the 1,500-acre farm, yelling would do no good.

So he pulled out his 3-inch pocket knife and hacked away at his leg.

“I have had other incidences. I try to hold my cool or figure out how to make the situation better at the time,” he said. “It’s hard to describe. You want to survive and you do what you need to do to survive, I guess.”

Kaser saw the machine remove his foot from his body and continue to tear away at his flesh. About 8 inches below his knee, he found the smallest connection of tissue and determined that it was his best chance to free himself.

He sawed away at muscles and nerves, cutting through a half-inch to an inch before he came free.

“The bone stuck out down to my ankle,” he said. “That’s what I was hanging onto as I was trying to get myself out.”

I'm so glad he's alive. I know of so many who have died due to farm machinery mishaps.

I Swear, such true grit will keep a person alive.  Proud of my sod-busting heritage and always dream about the farm.  It is dangerous, sure, it is, if the machinery doesn't get ya, the pesticides or an animal will...  Or old age...

Miss the chores to this day...

I don't miss the chores one bit. I think the reason my brother and I were conceived were to be farm hands, freezing in the Winter and baking in the Summer while younger sister parked her fat ass on the couch at the house. Dairy cows suck.

I loved our dairy farm. We girls worked just as hard as the boys. No one sat around.

LOL No one dared to be caught sitting around doing nothing.

When I was a kid, my neighbors were dairy farmers. I use the word 'neighbors' lightly since they were about 3 miles away lol. But when I was little, I became a volunteer farm hand. I'd get up at 4:30, saddle up my horse, ride through the timber and pasture and meet up with them back where the cows were. We'd then drive them to the barn for the morning milking, then I'd ride back home and get ready for school. As soon as I got home, I'd do it again for the afternoon milking.

I thought I was a real cowboy at age 7 :p I had the hat, the boots and even the lariat draped around the saddle horn. I know those guys worked really, really hard at what they did, but my part was pretty fun actually :)
If you have to fight, fight like the third monkey on the ramp to Noah's Ark. And brother, it's starting to rain...

That actually sounds like fun. We had a Shetland Pony by the name of "Fury" who was a mean, bad tempered horse. One day I had my back to the pasture fence and frigging Fury reach over and bit me on the top of the shoulder - Son of a bitch - THAT HURT!!

It also pissed me off. I knew Fury had one particulate habit while grazing so I went back to the house and got my BB gun.

So, I come back and there is Fury grazing and when he does so, he wheels his dick out. One carefully placed BB gun round ball to the head of the dick and he did something I never seen a horse do. He jumped straight up, all four legs off the ground and started trying to run in the air. He wheeled his dick in and then ran off to chase and bite at the cows like he had been wronged.

The glue factory got him after he threw my old man who was riding him into the creek by running right up to the creek, stopping short and the old man went flying into the creek.

Oh that sounds great. I can just see you doing that.

Ours came when they were called. They loved that dairy feed. We only had about 25 that were milked. It was a very small operation.

Yeah, childhood seems to take forever, but it is soon fleeting. Every year of life is like putting a painting on a wall as a reference point and it seems the more pictures you have on the wall, the faster another painting goes up.
