This requires immediate medical attention at a hospital emergency department.


Tissue is partially or completely cut or torn from body.


Go immediately to the hospital. Wrap the detached part of the body in clean, wet cloth. Put the part in the cloth into a waterproof plastic bag and put the waterproof plastic bag into a jar filled with ice water or cold water. Send it to the hospital with the victim so that it may be reattached if possible. Do not scrub the body part or let it become frozen.
