What to Do If a Body Part Comes Off

I have to admit this was a very, very hard article to read. But it's a good one and an important one. And worth reading because there may come a time when something really bad happens to you or to somebody you're with. Stuff happens to people, either on purpose (remember John Bobbitt? -- and if you don't, then read about him here), or by accident. Fingers, teeth, even eyes, don't always stay where they belong. And what you think you know about dealing with this kind of emergency is probably wrong. (Don't put knocked-out teeth in milk for instance; keep fingers cold, but not frozen.) Read the article it and keep it handy.

And it's always a good idea to have a first aid kit at home.
