BOULDER, Colo. –

A Boulder woman cut off the tips of several fingers on one hand while using a Cuisinart kitchen appliance Saturday, according to police.

Dispatchers said someone called 911 about 6 p.m. to report that a woman in the 200 block of Kiowa Place, located in southwest Boulder, had severed the tips of her fingers.

Paramedics and the Boulder Fire Department responded to the call, according to police dispatchers, and transported the woman to Boulder Community Hospital.

The extent of her injuries was not clear Saturday night.

Now this IS an interesting story!

Give me a person preparing a meal who cuts off her fingertips! You’ve got my attention!

This is sad, and so conceivable.

What was the recipe?
