Jon Metz: a Real Life 'Saw' scenario!

We've all had a 'good day gone bad' scenario but for 31 year old Jon Metz, this saying has never been more real. His nightmare began as a normal day on June 7, 2010 and ended two, hellishly long days later with a story that resembles that of the horror movie SAW!! ...only Jon was the only one playing and it wasn't a game!!

Jon Metz sat trapped in his basement with his arm wedged and rotting, within his own furnace, for hours upon hours before he was forced to choose between continuing that same fate or removing his own arm from his body?!!

When no sign of help came for poor Jon Metz (at least not until June 9, 2010) he'd already began to saw off his own arm with a freakin' hacksaw! OMG!! until the pain caused him to pass out. According to doctors, this brave and courageous effort he did put forth to dislodge himself also saved his life, despite the fact that it cost him his arm.
