Nebraska farmer gruesomely saves his own life after getting stuck in equipment

After trying and failing to free himself, he made a decision to chop off his leg - spending about five minutes sawing away at his own flesh, reports NBC News. "I thought, 'How long am I going to stay conscious here?' I didn't know what to expect".

Now that Kaser is home, he said he feels fortunate.

Mr Kaser said he had removed a safety covering at the end of the auger in the winter to make the equipment fit under a grain bin, and told ABC News he was "kind of disappointed in myself that I didn't think of fixing that thing". When Kaser couldn't find his cell phone, he nearly lost hope, "I was afraid it was going to suck me in more". He was released from rehab over the weekend but will need to wait until his leg is fully healed to be fitted for a prosthetic.

The entire ordeal lasted about five minutes, but Kaser sounded sanguine about it and the loss of the bottom half of his leg.

He's now recovering at a rehabilitation center.

Every leads the pack at rain-affected Byron Nelson
Jordan Spieth, without a win since the 2017 British Open and without a top-20 finish this season, was tied for 16th at 10 under. But he was only 1 under through 10 holes when play stopped, his only other non-par hole being a bogey at the par-5 No. 7.

"I look at other people that were [at the hospital] and I still have most of my leg and hope to walk again soon", he adds to NBC News.

Once Kaser amputated his leg, he then pulled himself to his phone - which was about 150 feet away and far out of reach while he was in the hopper - and called for help. I don't want to give up'. "Finally, it let go, and then I started crawling to the house". He was rushed to a hospital and later airlifted to another hospital where his daughter works.

"It is what it is", Kaser said. I know I will be walking again fairly normally.

The farmer told CNN that this isn't the first time he's had a scare like this on the farm.

The incident may remind some moviegoers of a scene in the 2010 film "127 Hours". After spending days trapped in the canyon, Ralston freed himself by amputating his arm.
