    Japanese biker fails to notice missing leg :eek1


    Tuesday Aug 14 13:11 AEST
    A Japanese biker failed to notice his leg had been severed below the knee when he hit a safety barrier, and rode on for 2 km, leaving a friend to pick up the missing limb.
    The 54-year-old office worker was out on his motorcycle with a group of friends in the city of Hamamatsu, west of Tokyo, on Monday, when he was unable to negotiate a curve in the road and bumped into the central barrier, the Mainichi Shimbun said.
    He felt excruciating pain, but did not notice that his right leg was missing until he stopped at the next junction, the paper quoted local police as saying.The man and his leg were taken to hospital, but the limb had been crushed in the collision, the paper said.

    Incidentally, he found out his leg was missing when he stopped and fell over trying to put his foot down. At least somebody called that one right.

    Big injuries don't hurt sometimes.

    I remember feeling something was not right when I crashed and fractured my clavicle (and two ribs), but could not figure out what it the problem was. Ultimately, tracing a finger over my shoulder I discovered something sticking out (NO pain!)..... and was immediately happy it was a fracture and not a dislocation.
