A 17 year old named Brett Bouchard, from Massena, NY, is recovering at a Massachusetts hospital after his arm was severed from the elbow down last Thursday. The teen was working at his job at Violi's Italian restaurant, when a pasta machine somehow turned on and ripped a portion of his arm off.

Ouch. Poor guy was probably making minimum wage at a job like this to begin with....and now this? There's a website here where you can help donate for his medical bills and his family's travel costs. He is obviously going to have a very long road to recovery ahead of him.
