PROPELLER "OUCH" STORIES
The Lake Sawyer Hawks fly on floats near Seward Park on Thursday mornings. One of their members tried to grab a Timber, who's throttle went full forward after the transmitter was dropped. He grabbed the wing, and the plane whipped around and the prop got him in the wrist. It cut an artery, resulting in a LOT of blood and quick first aid (with a a tourniquet!), followed by a ride in the ambulance. He is OK now, but it could have been much worse without quick action.
