I think this can be blown out of the water quite easily.
Monteith had never examined Bauman in person. He gave his diagnosis after examining photos and videos.
No competent doctor would give any sort of diagnosis without actually examining the patient in person.

Admin Update:

The primary claim made was that the "amputations" were below the knee, but later photos show Bauman's legs amputated above the knee. This has been debunked by multiple accounts that explain that after the initial below knee trauma (the effects of the explosion seen in the icon photo), there was an initial at-knee amputation, then finally an above knee amputation.

Were they just the ones that were circulating at the time directly after, or close-up photos taken at the operation or something like that?

But yeah, that is true, generally. Unless they were different photos to what everyone is familiar with.

No, but does it really matter? One cannot make a diagnosis from photos.
I agree. but its hard to debunk in full if we don't know what this guy is talking about. (which I don't)

Bauman got that 'death look' makeup on pretty fast too for the wheelchair pics.

So yeah, not special pictures just the iconic one.

My guess is there was little blood flow because the "cowboy figure" had the sense to use his fingers to pinch off the artery. Which you can see in the photo.

This picture?


Found this detail...

On the day of the bombings, he underwent an emergency amputation to remove his legs at the knees, and two days later, flesh was amputated until four inches above the knees.

Anyway, pretty ridiculous and offensive.

Doctors can diagnose skin problems from Selfies. Can't speak to how competent these doctors are.

And that detail is really all that is needed to debunk the entire thing. I've updated the OP with it, and another similar account from the NYT, and marked the tread debunked.

If someone feels there's another claim there that needs debunking, then please start a new thread.
