A Nebraska farmer has sawed off his own leg with a pen knife after becoming trapped in farming equipment.

Kurt "Stumpy" Kaser, 63, was moving grain from one silo to another when he was pulled into an auger - a tube with an interior shaped like a screw.

He was forced to cut off his lower leg with a 3in (7.6cm) pen knife and crawl to the nearest phone for help.

The farmer spent weeks in hospital and rehabilitation before returning home to Pender near the Iowa border on Friday.

The farmer was working alone on his 1,500-acre (607-hectare) property on 19 April when the accident occurred.

Unable to find his phone to call for help, Mr Kaser watched as the machine tore his foot off and mangled his lower leg as it pulled him further inside.

The farmer then took out his pen knife and cut off what remained of his limb below the knee.
