Only the finger made it

"BERLIN (Reuters) - A German man's severed finger traveled 60 kilometers by rail after its owner trapped his hand in the door trying to board a train at the last minute, police said Tuesday.

"Passengers traveling from Freiburg to Cologne Sunday noticed the finger lying on the carriage floor and alerted police.

"Officers collected it at the next station.

"Doctors said they were confident they could reattach the finger to its 34-year-old owner after it was rushed back to Freiburg in an ambulance."

Moral of the story: If you don't make the train, wait for the next one!
