Fisherman's finger chopped off

A FISHERMAN has been flown to a Tasmanian hospital after his finger was chopped off.

The 45-year-old man “severed a finger on his left hand whilst commercially fishing for rock lobster”, Tasmanian Police Inspector Darren Hopkins said.

The accident occurred just after 7pm (AEDT) today at Low Rocky Point, south of Strahan on Tasmania's remote west coast.

A satellite phone was used to alert emergency services.

“The Westpac Police Rescue Helicopter was tasked and airlifted the male from the area at 9pm to the Royal Hobart Hospital,” Insp Hopkins said.

Hmm, I had a finger chopped off and half of another one as well and I never made the news. :1prop::074:

Nothing better than playing the old "finger deep up the nose" trick on people. :074:
