The bad part about living in a "wooded area near the clinic" is that you live in wooded area near the clinic. The good part is that should you decide to construct a "homemade guillotine" and chop your own arm off with it, it's a short walk to get it looked at by a doctor.
Bellingham police were called to a medical clinic in the 300 block of Birchwood Avenue late Thursday morning after a man walked into the clinic with a severed right arm. Employees from the clinic called for an ambulance and police.
Statements made by the man to police indicate that the injury was self inflicted.
Officers checked a wooded area near the clinic and discovered a camp believed to be the temporary home of the individual. At the camp, officers located the severed arm and a homemade Guillotine.
The arm was transported to the hospital in the hopes it could be reattached. The Guillotine will be dismantled.
The condition of the victim is not known at this time only that he was being airlifted to Harborview in Seattle for further treatment.
