A woman has spoke out about her 'date from hell' when she was abandoned by her Tinder date on top of a mountain after impaling her hand on a tree stump.
Sarah Wylie's date was more bothered about getting his bloodied sock back after the incident rather than checking if she was okay.
For the pair's first date, Sara had organised for them both to climb Mount Tibrogargan, in Queensland, Australia, at sunrise earlier this year which is a pretty cute idea.
However, the date took a disastrous turn when she suddenly slipped and began to fall down the slope. As she tried to stop herself from falling Sara grabbed a tree stump but ended up impaling her hand.
To top it all off, as Sarah lay with a huge hole in her hand her date, who she has chosen not to name, left her stranded at the top of the mountain as he 'needed to get to work'.
Before he left, he also asked for his sock back which Sarah had been using to stop the bleeding.
Thankfully some off-duty firefighters spotted Sarah and she was taken to hospital.
The exercise physiologist said: "I didn't want to meet up straight away, so I got to know him first and we talked for about three weeks.
"Then we decided to climb a mountain together for our first date. It sounded like a really nice idea and something a little different.
"As soon as I met up with him, I didn't really get a good feeling from the very beginning. I could tell straight away it probably wasn't going to work.
"We had not even been together for an hour before the fall happened. My footing was off and I rolled my ankle and fell.
"As I was falling, I looked behind me and noticed there was a tree stump so I tried to grab onto it. But instead, I impaled my hand.
"It went into my palm and ripped all the way through to my middle finger. I knew straight away it was serious, as I could see the muscle fibres poking out of my hand.
"I'd never seen so much blood in my life.
"He had absolutely no idea what to do. He was trying to get reception on his mobile phone, so that he could call his work.
"He then said he had to go because he needed to go to work and had a lot of meetings.
"This was only 10 or 15 minutes after I fell.
"After I fell initially, I saw so much blood on my hand and asked him to help me take my singlet off to stop the bleeding.
"But instead he just took his sock off.
"So I just used that until the fireman wrapped a proper bandage around my hand.
"But the most shocking part was that he actually asked for the sock back before he left.
"At this point I was going in and out of consciousness, but all he cared about was his sock, which by then was completely covered in blood.
"I was absolutely shocked at his behaviour."
Three hours later, Sarah was abseiled down the mountain and had to have urgent surgery and 22 stitches in her hand.
The traumatic experience has left Sarah with permanent nerve damage and scarring on her right hand.
Perhaps most savage of all, Sarah's date then messaged her while she was in hospital to ask to see a photo of her hand, before proceeding to block her on all social media platforms. Charming.
