For removing your arm when trapped by the furnace?

I don't think I would have been too happy... Why didn't he just let go of the cookie?

    What was he doing?

    I have never replaced fins in a furnace. My heart goes out to this guy that is awful!

    Lost Arm

    I saw a story in the Hartford Courant News paper on Tuesday. It showed the old boiler being removed thru a basement window section by section. The article said he lost a attachment to his vacuum cleaner and was trying to reach it. It was a large maybe National Boiler, from the article I believe he reached thru the cleanout down between the sections toward the chamber when his arm got stuck. He was squatting when it got stuck and found a board to sit on, It's a terrible accident but as I tell people "this isn't a hobby it's a Trade"
