    That has to be one of the worst injuries I have seen to a hand/fingers......except losing the lot etc....

    That will take some stitching!!!

    I hope he recovers....send some pics in a few weeks..lets see the skill of the surgeon...they are quite brill nowadays..

    I used to fly rc planes and those things rev at around 15,000 rpm put your fingers near that when its on full bore and they wont look like that, they will more than likely be missing.
    Bit easier for the doctor to mend though.
