Hours before unemployment officials were to determine whether he was physically fit for work, an Austrian man sawed off his left foot with an electric saw, Austrian broadcaster ORF reported. The 56-year-old man had just learned that his benefits could be slashed if he did not accept work found for him, the Daily Mail reported. He reportedly placed the severed foot in a wood stove to make sure doctors could not reattach it to his leg. Meticulous, perhaps, but possibly not a success. Url may still qualify for work despite the amputation, the Daily Mail reported.
