The 56-year-old sliced off his foot with a saw prior to undergoing a health check for work fitness.
Police arrived at his home in Mitterlabill, Austria to find him suffering from blood loss with his amputated foot found thrown in an oven. After being airlifted to hospital doctors were able to save his life but were unable to reattach his foot as it was too badly burned.
"An unemployed Austrian man on Monday deliberately sliced off his left foot with a mechanical saw and threw it into an oven ahead of a health check on whether he was fit to work, police said."
