Doctors Reattach Teen's Arm Severed Cleaning Pasta Machine: Gothamist
Last month, a teenager employed at an upstate NY Italian restaurant severed his arm while cleaning an industrial pasta maker. Brett Bouchard, 17, was cleaning the machine at Violi's Restaurant on April 24th when his right arm became caught and was severed at the elbow. "It wasn't a sharp cut," one of his surgeons, Dr. Kyle Eberlin, told CBS. "His arm had actually been sort of pulled off which makes it a more difficult injury to treat." Despite that, doctors were able to reattach the arm.
