Ouch! I bet that stung.....

Perusing my morning google alerts I came across this:

Battle of Britain hero dies

The pain of his nearly-severed foot caused him to cancel his planned freefall and pull the ripcord. He then applied a tourniquet using his helmet wireless lead.

Absolutely nails.
Seriously hard core.

My parachute got caught and I was forced back along the fuselage, my gloves being blown off. I tried to do a delayed drop from about 20,000 feet (6153 metres) because I was losing blood very quickly but was unable to stand the pain of the foot twisting in the slipstream, so I pulled the ripcord and put on a tourniquet (while descending) using my helmet wireless lead.
God, reading it makes the hairs on me teeth stand on end.

Heated by sheer awesomeness, I'd say!
