This week in California, a man walked into a Home Depot, picked up some saws, and just starting cutting away at his arms down to the bone. In this fragile economy, we know that home goods can sometimes cost an arm and leg. But, c’mon dude. That doesn’t mean literally.

LAist is reporting that an off-duty fire department captain from Pasadena happened to be in the store and MacGyvered some First Aid for the unidentified man.

While the man survived and is currently in intensive care, for a second or two there he was laying in a puddle of blood, in the middle of Home Depot, dying. Cpl. Rudy Lopez of the West Covina Police Department said that he “was pretty much intent on doing what he did.”

We feel really bad for this guy. He was obviously on something or has a mental disorder, but this gives a whole new meaning to “Clean up on Aisle 3.”
