This happened on December 20, 2012 in Lusaka, Zambia. A truck loaded with sheets of metal drove through the backcountry but because the sheets were not properly secured, they slid off the trailer. As the Murphy’s Law would have it, even though it happened in the middle of some field, a woman just happened to be there so the falling sheets cut her foot off. Just how fucked up your luck must be if this happens to you?
Good Samaritans from a nearby community came to comfort the woman while others searched through the brush for her severed foot. They found it along with the sandal about 10 meters from where the woman was.
