Filiberto Huaracha, tells WSB-TV the saw of a stone grinder ripped through his arm, nearly slicing it in two.
Huaracha says he began running, spotted a sign for a doctor’s office about 500 yards away, and made it to the front walk of Dr. Keith Jeffords.
Jeffords said his staff and even his patients helped in the rescue effort.
Huaracha said Tuesday that surgeons at Grady Memorial Hospital were able to save his arm. He believes he probably would have died had it not been for Jeffords and others who helped.
