Things worked out exactly as they should have worked out here. Guy is given a choice about his medical intervention, guy makes choice, everyone respects that choice. Tragic, but I'm glad his wishes were honored.

I think everybody else with a terminal condition should be extended the same courtesy.

This is the opposite of sad. Would that we all had such an option when confronted with such a choice.

/my aunt died Monday after THREE MONTHS of pallative care for terminal cancer; she prayed for death in the last 60 days, but Catholic doctrines and her membership in that particular sect meant she couldn't ask for it.

Well he died doing what he loved, ending a life prematurely

Cold_Sassy: I think everybody else with a terminal condition should be extended the same courtesy.


An article I read indicated that this was as clean as it could be- usually people in such cases are unable to make their wishes known or unable to understand what is going on. In this particular case the guy was able to do so.

Hunters still fall out of tree stands?  Tie off you idiots.

Advance Directives: Every adult should sign one so that their final wishes can be known and keep their loved ones from the agony of trying to make these decisions for them.

Oregon was the first state to pass assisted suicide. I think this will be the next big Human rights fight in this country.

Married three months, family and friends a present reminder of the good in life, and he makes that irreversible decision. If he's a donor, I'd like a courage transplant, one of those massive, clanging brass balls.

THIS. A brazillion times this. Make sure you have one, and that the important people in your life KNOW where it is in case of accident.

A word of caution, though. No matter how many times you may insist, your request that you be "fellated to death" will not be honored.

Sad story, but at least he had a choice.  Didn't list any details, but sounds like he wasn't wearing a harness though.

A few years back I knew a guy that fell out of a home made stand.  He laid there a couple of hours before his buddies found him and took him home.  He wouldn't go to the Dr/emergency room and they found him dead in his bed of internal bleeding the next morning.

Last year a neighbor fell out of a store bought stand that had been in the tree for several years.  The nylon strap broke due to tree growth stretching it and he weighs 250.  His wife was with him and they aircared him.  He stayed several weeks in the hospital with various broken bones and several surgeries to insert steel plates.

Neither one had a harness on. Bottom line, be careful if you're above the ground for any reason and wear your harness.  Accidents happen.

That's why I ALWAYS wear a harness.  My stand is 16ft up, and damned if it doesn't feel like it's 100ft when you'www.cpsc.govre out there alone.
 
2013-11-06 02:03:36 PM
Stanley, see this? This is this. This ain't something else. This is this. From now on, you're on your own.

If I were in his decision, I'd emphatically make the exact same choice, but I don't think taking the easy and logical way out of his situation took any courage whatsoever.

How do you know it was an accident? Maybe the deer won this one.

Not sure about Indiana, but in New York they'd fine his ass for not having a tag...
 
2013-11-06 02:14:05 PM
His body was sent to Chuck Testa.

I'm pretty sure he had a tag when it was all said and done.

My dad fell out of his stand this morning and broke 3 ribs. So I'm getting a kick...

Yeah, I think i'd take the same decision but from my perspective it would be more courageous to learn how to live with the new situation. You can always decide to finish the job next week/month/year if it isn't what you can handle.

Good point.  Who is going to say we don't need AR-15's to hunt with if this is true.

I came across a bottle of about 100 VERY potent painkillers when I moved this summer. Instead of selling them to my neighbours I put them away with the thought that if I'm ever diagnosed with something very bad I could probably ease out that way. I think everyone should have that choice.

It was funny. Lighten up.

My brother in law couldn't get his harness undone in time and shiat his pants while in his stand.

Another time he came upon my father in law's orange glove out in a cornfield, called him on the phone to see if he dropped it, picked it up only to find it was used to wipe his ass.

Just the thought of being paralysed from the neck down makes for some serious nightmare fuel, ugh.

Funny and true.

Making that decision and sticking to it takes a lot of courage.
I'm glad he got to make a choice.

Of course, if he had stayed home making breakfast and babies with his new wife he wouldn't be on Fark today.

Your post is full of shiat.

As much as I fear ending up in this situation, I am not sure I would make the same decision. Especially with the advancement of the biomedical field. Okay, you are paralyzed from the waist down and need a breathing tube. Your brain is still fully functioning though. Look around, there are people who have some semblance of a normal life while being a paraplegic and there are new technologies discovered daily to assist people like that.

This guy was paralyzed "from the SHOULDERS down"...you're basically just an immobile head at that point...
