An elderly man who got stuck in forestry machinery near Olofström in southern Sweden on Wednesday, was saved by his son who was forced to cut off his arm in order to free him.

The man, who was born in 1938, was rushed to Kristianstad hospital late Wednesday, according to the local Blekinges Läns Tidning (BLT) daily.

Since the father was born in 1938, I doubt his son was a child. I think he'll be psycholigically okay.
