Man Saws Off His Own Arm, Hand - Hides Body Parts Inside Home

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (The Weekly Vice) - A 34-year-old man whose name is being withheld by police was hospitalized Wednesday after he reportedly cut off his hand and arm with a chainsaw, then hid the severed parts inside his home.

According to Philadelphia Police, firefighters were called to the scene of a reported industrial accident inside a residence around 8:00 p.m. When police and paramedics arrived, they discovered a man with a horrible self-inflicted wound.

Investigators say the man used an electric saw to sever his own arm below the elbow. After he completely cut off his arm, he then cut his hand off of the dismembered limb and hid both body parts inside his residence.

The man was rushed to Albert Einstein Medical Center. His condition is unknown. He was also scheduled for a psychiatric evaluation. Detectives are working to determine why the man amputated his own arm.
