Seems ok to me, checked it in both browsers and can't see anything wrong with it. (Unless of course the moderator gods fixed it for me) ;)

you have also said that your workmates think he was stupid, which really adds nothing and is somewhat derogatory.

Indeed, far from being "stupid" he appeared to take quite rational action in order to extract himself from the situation.

Its a given that he should have let someone know his plans...but really.....

Kieranl wrote " No-one could imagine doing it without benefit of anaesthetic"....why not...thats exactly what the used to do beofre anaesthetic, medical history is full of examples of this, its what "barber " surgens did all the time!

I'm sure not many people could imagine performing an amputation with their arm pined beneath a boulder let alone without aneasthetic.....far from being shocked, as you claim your non-foolish co-workers were, i find it to be yet another amazing show of what a person can do against seemingly insurmountable odds, when many others would have simply seen no option at all and let themselves expire.

Given his resourcefulness and "survival" skills he is a dead set ledgend! Truely amazing.

Donut King, you said it yourself : "Its a given that he should have let someone know his plans ...".
To me that means that you agree with my work-mates. They used the word "stupid" about his failure to tell anyone about his movements. They were in awe of how he rescued himself but their position is that if someone had known roughly where he was going and when he would be back then he might not have had to resort to those measures.
The views my co-workers expressed aren't mine. I passed them on to provoke some debate beyond the "Gee Whiz, how coud you do that" variety.

A quick clarification. When my co-workers were discussing the failure of the accident victim to tell anyone where he was going, the word "stupid" was used.
I didn't use the word, but I have reported it's use.
