Man Loses Finger in iPad Robbery

Some people think the new Apple iPad will cost them an arm and a leg.  Turns out it's only a finger. Bill Jordan found that out the hard way on his recent trip to the Apple store. Security cameras show that after Jordan left the store, two potential thieves were following him in hopes of snatching the shiny new iPad. With the bag containing the iPad tightly wrapped around his fingers, Jordan suddenly felt a sharp tug and looked around to see a thief pulling at the bag so hard that it stripped the skin off his finger.

"He was almost sitting down on the ground, he was pulling so hard," Jordan explained. "It was still tied around my fingers, it wouldn't come off. Finally, he gave it one big jerk and that's when he stripped the skin off from my pinky and it went right down to the bone."

Jordan grabbed napkins from the food court to stop the bleeding and was rushed to the hospital, but the damage was done and part of his pinky had to be amputated. During an interview with CBS Channel 4, Jordan left the still-at-large thieves with this statement: "I hope you understand what you have done to me and to my family's life - for a simple piece of apparatus that will be junk in a couple of years."
