    Ala. Man's Finger Gets Stuck in Gas Tank

    HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - A man felt the pain of the gas tank, and he wasn't even at a pump. Dwight Clark's dilemma occurred Wednesday afternoon in the parking lot of a pharmacy when he apparently tried to clear some gunk from around the opening of the gas tank. His finger got stuck in his gas tank's opening.

    "His finger went in past the knuckle and was stuck," Huntsville Fire & Rescue Capt. Nolen Locke said. "People had sprayed WD40 all over, but that didn't work."

    Locke said rescue workers tried several ways to free Clark without cutting the metal because he didn't want them to damage his truck. But they eventually had to cut through.

    "We started with a Sawzall, but the vibrations made it too painful for him," Locke told The Huntsville Times. "Then we used tin snips to finish it."

    He said it took about 25 minutes to get the fuel valve out, with Clark still stuck. He was then taken to Huntsville Hospital, where doctors worked to free his finger.

    "I've been a firefighter for 16 years and I've never seen anything like it before," Locke said.
