When he got close to the source, he found a man on the ground.

“When he turned around I saw that he was holding his left arm,” Garcia said. “And he was just covered in blood.”

The victim had accidentally cut his arm with a chainsaw Friday at the back to Juanita Cabral’s home. She said the victim is her brother.

So, Garcia jumped into action by creating a tourniquet with his belt until paramedics got there.

“Looped it through the hole, put it around his arm , tighten it as best as I could, and just wrapped it up,” he said. “And held it there as best as I could.”
