Half-Chopped by Forklift, Man Shares Horrifying Scene Photo

A man, who was courageously willing to share a photo of the terrifying incident that altered his life forever, had been half-chopped by a forklift.

In September 2019, while operating a forklift on a bridge in the United States, Loren Schauers, 21, lost control of the vehicle, causing it to fall 50 feet to the ground.

His life was substantially changed due to being half-chopped by the four-ton vehicle.

After the incident, the builder underwent hemicorporectomy surgery, a brave choice he made to survive. The surgery involved amputating everything below his waist, resulting in the loss of three limbs.

The labourer has shown courage by sharing pictures of the moment that nearly cost him his life, three years after the incident.

Schauers is not visible underneath the forklift, which is shown overturned at the edge of a steep hill in the pictures.

On Instagram, he wrote: “If you look closely in the second photo, you can see me still pinned under the forklift. The last photo is exactly what type it was I’m sure of.”

Sabia Reiche, now 23 and Schauers’ current wife, was told by doctors that Schauers wouldn’t survive, causing her to say goodbye to him six times.

Despite the odds against him, he survived the incident, but his journey towards recuperation has been arduous.

Schauers stated previously: “I was conscious throughout everything so I watched as the forklift fell on top of me and crushed my body. “Every medical professional I come across is pretty amazed by everything, especially with the story that comes along with my injuries. It wasn’t a hard choice to have half of my body amputated – it was a choice of living or dying. With Sabia assuring me to stay by my side no matter what and all my immediate family being around me, it wasn’t a hard choice for me!

Following the accident, Schauers’ YouTube channel, which he shares with his wife, has gained thousands of followers as he documents his life through vlogs.

Reiche has been very supportive of him, helping him with his health issues and daily needs while he keeps his fans updated on his life.

She dismissed a question about their sexual activity as ‘disrespectful’ during a recent Q&A session.

She said: “A question we get repeatedly is how do we have sex and how do we become intimate. That is a very personal question that we are never going to answer or allude to, as it’s very disrespectful. You wouldn’t ask a random couple on the street how they have sex, and just because our life circumstances are different, it doesn’t give people the right to ask.

Isn’t he lucky to have beaten death even though being “half-chopped” might be harsh to be mentioned? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
