    Quick response saves sword victim

    By Debra Glidden

    Wednesday, February 23, 2005
    NAHANT - Police received an unusual 911 call at 12:27 Sunday afternoon.

    Nevin Pothier, a 13-year-old boy, who is a student at Swampscott Middle School, was "playing with a sword" and severed his femoral artery.

    Lt. Thomas Hutton, who was the first on the scene, said the teen, was bleeding profusely.

    "He was playing with a three foot sword and it went approximately three inches into his body in the groin area. The sword was razor sharp and cut the femoral artery," Hutton said.

    Hutton said he tried to get the bleeding under control until help arrived.

    "It was critical situation. Someone can bleed out in just as little as two or three minutes. The fire department did an excellent job responding," Hutton said.

    Fire Lt. Edward Hyde and Firefighter Adam Hatfield, who were manning the town-owned ambulance were the next on the scene.

    "It was a pretty good wound and was bleeding profusely," Hatfield said.

    Pothier's mother, Jean Inglis, said her son remained calm throughout the incident and she was very proud of him.

    Inglis credited Hutton, Hyde and Hatfield with saving her son's life.

    "They arrived almost immediately and were very professional," Inglis said as she sat by her son's hospital bed Tuesday afternoon.

    The teen, who is a former martial arts student, was transported to Salem Hospital, where he is in stable condition and his mother said he is expected to be released later this week.

    According to police, Inglis and his aunt were at home with the teen when the incident occurred.

    According to Hutton, possession of a sword or machete is not a crime as long as it is not taken outside the home or used to commit a crime.

    "There will not be any charges filed in connection with the incident," Hutton said.

    Eduardo "Why'd you stop."

    Me "I was kicked in the head by the guys sparring next to me."

    Eduardo "Ino what happened but i didnt say you could stop."

    Me "Um.. I guess I keep going."

    Eduardo "You dont stop until i say stop, you dont get tired until i say your tired, keep going."

    I hope for him not...

    but this is what gets me worried :

    " Pothier's mother, Jean Inglis, said her son remained calm throughout the incident and she was very proud of him."

    So your 13 year old son is playing with a SHARP sword in your home, cut's his femoral artery which mean he could of died in 3 minutes and you are proud of him for being calm ???

    was he calm or in shock ??

    Ouch. Did you read about the Scottish dude who cut off his own balls after losing a bet? Apparently, he had mental issues... I think I might have mentioned this a little before.

    I read an article about some guy who got killed because his pals told him baby cows give great head...

    Of course, this dude tried it & got his dick bitten off & died from the bleeding, followed by his mother suing the 'pranksters'...

    You can probably still find that with Google (if you want to)...

    Woman Flushes Boyfriend's Penis Down Toilet

    I thought this post was about this:

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7006822/

    Woman Flushes Boyfriend's Penis Down Toilet

    A woman in Anchorage, Alaska is charged with cutting off her boyfriend's penis and flushing it down toilet.



    The man is hospitalized Monday, recovering from surgery to have his penis reattached.

    The suspect, 33-year-old Kim Tran , is charged with assault, domestic violence and tampering with evidence.



    Police said the incident happened Saturday night when the 44-year-old man and Tran argued at their anchorage home.

    A short time later, the two were involved in sexual relations when the man agreed to be tied up to the windowsill.

    It was at that point, police said, Tran used a kitchen knife to amputate her partner's member and flush it down the toilet.


    Tran then untied the man and rushed him to the hospital as crews searched for and recovered the organ from the sewer, police said.

    Surgeons were able to reattach the member, but said it will take time to determine whether the operation will be successful.

    Police said they were surprised by the nature of the crime.

    "This is something that I have never seen before in my 15-years at the police department," said Anchorage Police Department spokeswoman Anita Shell. "It's a very unusual type of assault."

    That was me

    Yeah, I did that. Wasn't super smart but after recovering the accident did lead me to pursue and eventually understand the martial way that I just thought was so dang cool as a kid. I still do have a lot of respect for martial arts but my real calling is in research which I do on an independent basis. Until this article is removed I'm going to use it as one of many places that I self-advertise my services in forecasting, logistics, project planning/scheduling, a plethora of regression applications and more. Essentially I use my own unique mix of quantitative and qualitative methods in order to drill down to finding the causes of a problem and developing actionable insight into improving the system as a whole whether we be talking about problems professional or personal. I usually advertise to small businesses; however, I'll take on just about any client that I feel I can help. Obviously I prefer to take on goals that benefit the growth of my skills; chiefly, tasks of a technical order such as data analysis. At the moment of this submission I am only a fledgling analyst with little experience. Quite frankly I would take route planning for a dog walking service at this point. Assuming it fits me then no job is too small for Nevin Pothier.
