Judging by the news, bloggers are dying in different parts of the world every day. They fall off cliffs, are poisoned by unknown substances, freeze in the mountains and crash in accidents. These people risk their lives for the sake of content that can bring them subscribers and likes. But there are absolutely wild cases when selfie lovers suffer in the most ordinary situations. Instagram blogger from Norway, Sara Benedikte Nilsen, almost died after deciding to take a picture with pigs.
28-year-old Sarah and her mom went to a country farm on a day off. They chose to rest in the commune of Oppdal in the province of Ser-Trendelag, famous for its breeding pigs. The girl just wanted to take a few selfies with cute piglets and enjoy the rustic scenery. She could not even imagine that her trip could end tragically.
Sarah and her mother talked to a local farmer and asked him to show them the pigs. He gladly escorted visitors to the pen with animals. The blogger was happy to scratch the sides of the little pigs through the fence, but it seemed to her not enough. The girl wanted to take a picture with a huge 400-kilogram hog. She was not even confused by the fact that the giant's muzzle was decorated with sharp fangs, just like his forest brethren.
The farmer went to meet the wishes of the guest and let her into the pen. He warned Sarah not to make any sudden movements and to keep her hips closed if possible. The blogger approached the boar, while her mother was filming her on her phone from behind the fence.
But as soon as Sarah stopped stroking the animal and took out her phone, everything went according to an unexpected scenario. The boar first froze motionless, staring at the girl, and then attacked her with a loud squeal. Nielsen was very lucky that she managed to get up and the blow with the curved tusks did not hit her face or chest. The huge pig sank its fang into the girl's thigh and, shaking its head, threw her several meters away like a doll.
Sarah said that she felt the fang piercing her skin and muscles and that her jeans were instantly soaked in blood.
Farmer Joakim Nielsen, Sarah's namesake, was nearby, but everything happened so quickly that he did not have time to intervene. The man, along with the girl's mother, gave her first aid and called the medics. The victim was immediately taken to the clinic and an emergency operation was performed on her.
The owner of the pig told the press about this incident in an interview and said that he would not have had time to help, even being next to Sarah.
Now the local police have a few questions for the eloquent pig farmer. Representatives of the law believe that if he knew about the danger of his animals, he should have banned the photo shoot.
As for Sarah Nielsen, she's relatively fine. Surgeons have sewn up a large wound on her leg and she will soon start getting out of bed. The doctor who performed the operation on the girl said that her life was under threat. If the tusk had hit a little to the side, the artery would have suffered. In this case, the blogger would have bled to death before help arrived.
The operation performed on Sarah took 1.5 hours and the girl had 16 stitches on her hip. In the chamber, the blogger gave journalists a short interview in which she admitted that she had experienced the most terrible moments of her life. The girl warned other selfie lovers against rash steps and advised them to correctly assess the risks.
From this case, we can conclude that it is better to be photographed with small piglets. They are cute and absolutely safe creatures.
