Muhammad Fazal (40), farmer from Pol-e-Charhi, was shot by mistake by the Afghan Army Special Forces who picked him up, applied a tourniquet on his injured leg and handed him to his relatives. The tourniquet was too tight, there was not time mark and the soldiers did not explain Muhammad's relatives to remove the tourniquet after some time. The relatives put him in a taxi and drove to Kunduz, a few hours away. By the time Muhammad arrived at the Kunduz Trauma Centre, the tourniquet had been on for 4 hours. After the internal fixation surgery, doctors decided to amputate his leg above the knee. On the photo, physiotherapists show Muhammad simple exercises that he should start doing few days after the amputation.
