Angle Grinder Kick Back Causes Serious Forearm Injury

Angle Grinder Kick Back Causes Serious Forearm Injury

Today’s edition of Best Gore Members Rock is brought to you by Best Gore member @guy27, whose forearm was seriously injured when the angle grinder he was operating kicked back on him:

Angle grinder with cutting disk kicked back, cutting my left forearm, cutting my artery and the tendons from my pointing finger to pinky finger. It happened on April 26th 2016 in Blenheim, Ontario, Canada while I was at work.

Thanks a lot for sharing the pictures with us, @guy27. Hopefully the injure healed up well and you have regained full, or at least some use of your fingers.

  1. Fuck dude, this reminds me of my crush injury of a couple of years ago, also posted on here. It also happened at work, and in Ontario Canada. Hope that you heal well brother, and thanks for sharing. πŸ™‚

  2. @guy27 Man, you hairy beast(I thought it was a hairy leg at first)lol, you’re so lucky to be alive since it hit your artery! I hope everything heals correctly and you are able to get back to 100%. Thanks for sharing your story and good luck with your recovery!

    We already are in October bud ; tell us how well your injury has healed from the time it had happened .
    I am hoping healing is in place but the nasty scar might stay with ya for life ……
    Search the internet to see if there is a fix for scars like yours .

  4. Ouch! The SAME injury happened to me back in 2000, but mine just missed the tendons and main arteries/veins. I was grinding welds on a table and the disc tore, got stuck and the torque spun the fucking grinder up and right into the same spot on my arm. It could of been my face; I feel lucky to this day. I have a nice scar & a permanent numbness directly on the scar still. πŸ˜€

  5. Something that comes to me mind when I see those workplace accidents is how to avoid these accidents. It’s not always that easy to figure out what actually have happened merely from the gory images or the backstory.

    So a suggestion to those who maintain BestGore or those who submit the information could be to do a followup and try to investigate what have happened. Perhaps a relevant safety-instruction video could be referenced to. There are plenty of such videos such as this one, don’t know how relevant it is:

    It’s just a thought.
