Off-duty paramedic ‘MacGyver-ed’ items from shelves to save man.

Los Angeles Fire Captain. Art Hurtado jumped into MacGyver mode when he saw a man had deliberately cut his own arms to the bone with handsaws.

As others screamed, the veteran paramedic used materials from store shelves to stanch the bleeding.

“I kind of MacGyver-ed it,” Hurtado said Thursday, referring to the old TV drama about a secret agent who used whatever materials he could find to solve problems.
