POCATELLO, Idaho — An Idaho State University student and pianist lost three fingers in a potato gun explosion.
The Idaho State Journal reports Derek Schaible underwent surgery at Portneuf Medical Center, where he was listed in stable condition Sunday night.
Neighbor Paul Dial says he was watching television Sunday afternoon when he heard a loud boom that shook the pictures on his wall. He ran out and helped Schaible, wrapping his hands around his right arm and holding it above Schaible's head to stop the blood flow until paramedics arrived.
Schaible is a senior majoring in music performance, according to ISU's Web site. The Journal reports he was scheduled to play piano at the Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration at the nearby First United Methodist Church on Sunday night.
