Friend of family; nicked thigh bone; advanced case of stupidity. Another friend of family; lost three fingers; also advanced case of stupidity.
You want elaborate, you provide an acceptable eplanation of 'why' you want to know.

My Grandfather set a circular saw down on his leg after rigging the guard to keep it from covering the blade. The injury required significant sutures to close in the doctor's office.
Several years later, he was having a "routine" hernia repair when a clot broke free from the saw injury lodged in his heart and killed him.
This was some 30 years ago and the doctor in charge retired in the face of malfeasance charges, but that didn't make my Grandfather any less dead.
