Costa Rican Tourist Gets Leg Cut Off

Jump to last reply

The following news story is so bizarre that it's hard to believe it's true.

In summary, a tourist went to a doctor in Costa Rica complaining about a swollen leg. He woke up in the airport with his leg amputated and his suitcases next to him.

Anyway, I know I won't be going to the doctor when I'm in Costa Rica!
