Stitching Up His Own Wound

One night at his home back in 2008, Rutten dropped a six pack of beer, which promptly shattered and a fragment opened up a deep wound on his upper thigh.

At this stage 99% of people would have rushed to hospital to have the gaping wound stitched up by a trained professional, but instead Rutten decided to do it himself, explaining that he’d previously had a bad experience waiting all night in hospital to be treated and didn’t want to have to go through that again.

So, not only did he go through with his homemade self-stitching despite the needle not being sharp enough, but he also invited his kids to film the whole procedure from start to finish so they could learn what to do if they should ever find themselves in a similar predicament!
