Fans who froze themselves to watch a match rewarded by having to get their frostbitten limbs amputated

People are crazy about sports. In India its cricket, US it’s football, UK is rugby and Brazil has soccer. I am not a huge fan but even if I was I don’t think I would sit outside in minus-27 degrees just to watch a game. However, there are people in the US who actually did this to watch the Kansas city & Chiefs game earlier this year and ended up getting hypothermia & frostbite bad enough that 70% of them need amputations.

Yes you read that right. 70% of the fools who sat outside in the freezing cold are now looking at having their body parts amputated just because they didn’t want to leave a football match. I mean come on…

The other 30% are not out completely either, they’ll have sensitivity and pain for the rest of their lives and always will be more susceptible to frostbite in the future. The weather is not a joke, whether its the heat or the cold. You can pretend you don’t believe in it and that it is not becoming more extreme but you will still be suffering if you don’t take precautions and not take chances by avoiding exposure whenever possible.
