Ma'am, where is your arm?

OK, that's kind of an inside joke. When I was an EMT in NJ, there was a motor vehicle accident involving a quadriplegic victim. She was in a van sitting in a wheelchair when the rollover occurred and when we found her she was laying on her left side.

As we begin to assess her, another EMT, who shall remain nameless, sees her arm sticking through the window and trapped under the van,. He proceeds to yell "Ma'am, where is your arm??!!!!" Needless to say, since she was a quadriplegic, she had NO IDEA that her arm was stuck under the van and starting screaming and crying.

I digress. Jessica's right arm looks like it's missing in this picture.
