The "Killer Tiller" Award: After
Who: Caroline Hinshaw
Where: Sheridan, Indiana
As a former framing carpenter, Caroline knew what it would take to rebuild her barn. She never dreamed she'd need her nursing skills, too. She went to move her tiller and it jumped into reverse, pinning her against the wall; the tines cut in above her left knee, almost to the bone. A friend rushed over, but she covered the gash. "He said, 'I'm calling 911!' I said, 'Don't you dare!' But I couldn't get up to stop him," she says. She hadn't wanted the fuss of an ambulance ride, but she dressed the wound and waited.
