Sarah Wylie, 24, was speechless when the man – who had pursued her online for three weeks – appeared more bothered by ensuring he got his bloodied sock back after the accident – than her welfare.
The disaster occurred after Sarah organised a romantic first date to climb a mountain at sunrise earlier this year.
Sarah said she immediately got ‘bad vibes’ after meeting her mystery man but decided to follow through with their plans of hiking up the scenic Mount Tibrogargan, on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.
In a desperate attempt to save herself, Sarah grabbed onto a nearby tree stump – but horrifically impaled her hand.
And to make matters worse, her bemused date – who she has chosen not to name – left her at the top of the mountain as Sarah claims he ‘needed to get to work’.
Sarah also says that despite offering his sock to help stop the bleeding, he quickly asked for it back before heading off alone.
Thankfully Sarah had been spotted by off-duty firefighters who helped Sarah down from the mountain and took her to hospital, while her date made his way to work.
“I’d been chatting with this guy who had got in touch with me online,” the exercise physiologist said.
“I didn’t want to meet up straight away, so I got to know him first and we talked for about three weeks.
“Then we decided to climb a mountain together for our first date. It sounded like a really nice idea and something a little different.
“We had not even been together for an hour before the fall happened. My footing was off and I rolled my ankle and fell.
“As I was falling, I looked behind me and noticed there was a tree stump so I tried to grab onto it. But instead, I impaled my hand.
“It went into my palm and ripped all the way through to my middle finger. I knew straight away it was serious, as I could see the muscle fibres poking out of my hand.
“I’d never seen so much blood in my life.”
Miraculously, a team of off-duty firefighters who were also mountain climbing at the same time had witnessed the accident and thankfully came to Sarah’s rescue. SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
