The neighborhood bully once told me if I played tug-of-war with the big
kids, they'd pull my arms off. I'm glad I took him seriously and desisted.
Yan Chiung-ming and Chen Ming-kuo were participating in a tug-of-war event
in Taipei to commemorate the anniversary of the end of Japanese colonial
rule in Taiwan. Over 1,600 people pulled on a nylon rope. When the rope
split, the force dismembered both men at the shoulders.

(The severing of their limbs was believed to have been caused by sheer
rebounding force of the broken rope rather than the men’s having wrapped the
rope around their arms, as was sometimes reported.) The victims were taken
to Mackay Memorial Hospital and underwent seven hours of microsurgery to
reattach their arms:

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
