    Condolences to Pinkley and family. It is also great that there were persons present when the incident occurred. Hod it not been so, no one would have believed this story and deemed it a homicide.

    How very sad 💔
    Condolences to the family. Prayers during this difficult time.

    For future reference, do not try to remove the blade. Call emergency services. Typically removing the object causes far more damage. Also, vaseline and Saran Wrap will help control/stop bleeding while waiting.

      @g Someone lost her life in the most unorthodox manner and you come posting ridiculous nonsense! Have you lost your humanity? This is no comedy show. While the relatives are grieve-stricken and probably inconsolable, here is this insensitive and heartless moron, making a joke of this most unfortunate accident.

      Every death sounds like murder to some of you. Freak accidents happen all the time.

    Very tragic. That would have been an impaled object injury. The recommended first aid procedure for this is to leave the knife lodged in the body until the person is brought to the hospital.
