    Slovenian woman's hand sawn off 'in insurance fraud'

    Police in Slovenia have accused a woman of cutting off her hand with a circular saw - with the help of her family - to make a fraudulent insurance claim.



    The 21-year-old and a relative have been detained and face up to eight years in prison if convicted.

    The suspects recently took out injury insurance, police say.

    The woman allegedly stood to gain about 400,000 (340,000; $450,000) in compensation and monthly payments of about 3,000 from the policy.

    Four members of the family were initially detained earlier this year, but two were later released.

    Police say the group deliberately cut the woman's hand above the wrist at their home in the capital Ljubljana.

    Relatives took her to hospital, saying she had injured herself while sawing branches.

    Officials say the group left the severed hand behind rather than bring it to hospital, to ensure the disability was permanent. But the authorities recovered it in time to sew it back on.

    When pressed for an explanation as to how it happened she claimed she simply couldn't put her finger on it.

    Then quickly recanted and stated that while her brother was sawing up some wood for the fire she gave him a hand.

    Neighbor of mine way back in the day attempted something similar once.

    Pissed and drugged up and decided it would be a brilliant plan to cut a finger off to get compensation. Thing was they didn't have a phone so had to come to our flat to call for the ambulance.

    Genius.
