& # 39; I just have to survive this & # 39 ;: dad of two relives the horrible moment when his hand was torn off by farm machinery – before he drove himself to the hospital
- A farmer from Perth has put his hand to survive in a horrible night machine
- Gary Webster, from Ravensthorpe, lost his left hand in a horrible tractor accident
- He tried to free his hand from the tractor, but lost two fingers on his right hand
- Alone, Webster realized he had to drive himself to the nearest hospital
A farmer from Perth experienced it again the moment he lost his hand in a horrible industrial accident.
Gary Webster, from Ravensthorpe, on the south coast of Western Australia, lost most of his left hand and two fingers on the other after the tractor accident last week.
When he spoke for the first time since his terrifying ordeal, Webster said his hand got stuck when he changed the seed box around 12.30.
There was no one else around, so the father of two knew he would have to free himself or run the risk of bleeding.
He managed to wrestle his arm with a key, but he amputated two other fingers in the process.
Webster then drove to the hospital itself 10 miles away from his home.

& # 39; I just forgot to turn off the roles, & # 39; said Mr. Webster ABC news.
Webster managed to free his enclosed hand by unscrewing the lid of his seed drill arrangement and loosening the rollers, but he lost two more fingers.
"I just made a decision then, I don't care about my hand, I just have to survive this, so I thought of my family," he said.
Webster then drove to Raventhorpe Hospital, which is approximately 10 kilometers away.
His wife Bec and his children did not notice that he had been in such a terrible accident.
Webster said he was able to drive due to & # 39; a lot of adrenaline & # 39; who blocked the pain.
After arriving at the hospital, he said the staff were surprised that his car was a manual and not an automatic one.
Webster was rushed to Fiona Stanley Hospital in Perth for emergency surgery aboard a Royal Flying Doctor Service jet
Doctors at Fiona Stanley Hospital contacted Webster & # 39; s wife to see if she could pick up the missing fingers and hand, but by the time they reached Perth it was too late
Webster was then quickly brought to Fiona Stanley Hospital in Perth for emergency surgery aboard a Royal Flying Doctor Service jet.
His surgeon, Tim Cooper, contacted Bec to see if she could retrieve the missing fingers and hand, but by the time they reached Perth – an hour away – it was too late.
The farmer said he was not surprised that he had put his severed hand and fingers in his pocket so that they could be reattached later.
He said he & # 39; just & # 39; had made the decision that the limbs would not be good.
Although doctors were unable to reconfirm the severed limbs, Mr. Webster credited his voluntary training for firefighters to help him endure the ordeal.
He said he was happy with the outcome and hopes he can have a prosthesis or bionic hand fitted after his wounds have healed.
Since then, a fundraiser has been set up by the Raventhorpe community for Mr. Webster, who is now recovering in the hospital, with the locals giving him & & # 39; calls.
& # 39; This evening shows the respect and admiration the community has for Gary. He is an absolute miracle, & said Rod Daw, head of the Ravensthorpe fire department.
