Today's Dumbass award......8/27/2003

I have today's dumbass award..... I was at work today when I was called to a gas station in a local town(I am a paramedic). The assignment was for a "man's head caught in a lift?" here's the story. A local tow truck driver was dropping off a broken down vehicle at the gas station. It was a flatbed type tow truck. After safely placing the car on the ground the operator of the tow truck started sliding the flat bed back into position....apparently, the bed was almost back in position when he noticed a hydraulic line kinked. He bent over to unkink it and in the process of doing so....somehow he smushed his head between the frame of the truck and the moving hydraulic lift bed. OUCH!! I think that this may somehow qualify for a Darwin award...what do you think?

P.S.- He did'nt die....broken jaw, fractured skull and internal brain hemorrhage....but, he did'nt die

Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy horsepower. And I've never seen a sad person hauling a$$!
