Man stuck in his own furnace for three days

Authorities say a Connecticut man's arm has been amputated after it was stuck for at least three days in his furnace.

Police found 31-year-old Jonathan Metz in his West Hartford basement Wednesday night after friends grew worried when he missed work, did not answer calls and failed to show up at a softball game.

Authorities say he apparently was working on the furnace over the weekend when his left arm got stuck, trapping him for days. Firefighters had to rip apart the furnace to get him out.

Metz was listed in stable condition Thursday in the surgical intensive care unit of a Hartford hospital.
