A 47-year-old man in San Bernardino County cut off his hand with a kitchen knife, sheriff's officials said Thursday.
The Sheriff's Department received a call from a neighbor just after 2 p.m. Wednesday on Montezuma Street in Adelanto.
"He indeed completely severed his hand," said spokeswoman Cindy Bachman.
The man, whose name was not released, was taken to Loma Linda University Medical Center. It was unclear if drugs or alcohol were involved.
