Emma Got So Drunk and Fell Asleep Outside A Bar, When She Woke Up, Her Hands Look Like These!

Emma Quirk who currently resides in Canada got so drunk one night and fell asleep outside a bar at Prince Albert Saskatchewan, in the middle of winter season.

According to her, she was “blackout drunk” when she lost her peers and was last seen at around 2:30AM at a bar.

Quirk claimed she was just going out to have a cigarette but did not return inside and disappeared in the -30 degree Celsius temperature. Worse part is, she didn’t have her jacket or her gloves on!

Eventually, she was located outside a nursing home, three hours later, curled into a ball and trying to sleep. Her fingers, already purple.


“It was 5.45am when I was found. At 6.30 a nurse told me that best case scenario I keep my fingers… worst case I lose my hands,” Quirk said.

She was then brought and treated in a hospital where she spent several days to recuperate.

Dr. Randall Friesen, the specialist assigned to her stated that her fingers would blister and swell for a few more days before it could be popped.


Quirk described her situation as unbearable adding that she always takes opiates to at least minimize the frostbite pain.

When she was visited again by the doctor, she said Dr. Friesen was wearing an apron and a face mask with a plastic shield over his head.

He then put her hand over a metal tray after which her blisters were cut open with a scalpel. “Puss went everywhere. I think I even got the hospital curtains,” Quirk said.

She was left with mounds of extra skin after her finger deflated.


While her hands are still healing, Dr. Friesen said he is still concerned about the patient’s left pinky and right middle fingertip.

Quirk also added, “I won’t find out until June. If I lose them I want to make a sweet, custom made prosthetic.”
