In the region of the groin...

I expect that meant one of the two femoral arteries, and at that location, the bleeding would be pretty much impossible to stop or even slow down.

My friend nearly bled out after being shot with a Blazer "safety" slug in the thigh. It ripped his femoral artery to shreds and he nearly died before the ambulance got there which was less than 15 minutes.
Needless to say he didnt buy that gun and no longer considers the sellor a friend.

My Dad's great-uncle lived out in the boonies in New Mexico. Worked his own ranch and lived the life a REAL old west type guy.

Well, one day in the early 1950's Uncle Bug has decided that one of his testicles has been hurting him too long. I have never heard what eaxactly the problem was but one of them was apparently all swollen up. So he sharpens up a knife, goes out to the corral, and castrates himself!

He darn near blead to death, but he made it. The man is a legend in our family and at every deer camp I have ever hunted in!

They just don't make them like Uncle Bug anymore.

This is a true story. Belive it, or not!

OK, after reading Crock's story I'm now in the fetal position on the couch, legs crossed and I don't know if "the boys" are going to come down for the rest of the day.

SH*T! Mine just ran off together saying "Not us! Not us!"

Fortunately the squeeky voice doesn't translate well into text!

Some people don't know how to use a knife. They cut flesh and don't look at their 'target and beyond'. They use a dull knife, and as they struggle to cut, the flesh finally lets go and they either cut/stab themselves or a friend who's helping to hold the deer/animal.

I remember taking care of a guy in med school who was shot in the groin with a .32cal. He was brought into the ER and the paramedic was applying pressure to his right groin. As he released the dressing, blood shot straight up several feet! The x-ray showed the bullet partially flattened against the femur. The guy vomitted his dinner of about a six-pack and a tuna fish sandwich. Nasty smell. The story was that he was being a very obnoxious drunk who had messed with some guys woman. Said guy tried to shoot his penis. After spending a few days taking care of the guy I could see why someone would shoot him.

The same thing happened at a slaughterhouse/meat packing plant here in Indiana back in 1995. A guy accidentally sliced through the artery in his leg. Nobody could figure out what was wrong with him because he was already covered in pigs' blood, so he bled to death.

So, which is worse? This, or the Romanian guy who "accidentally" did a Bobitt on himself?
