Reuters, had a rather strange story: Heat Wave Claims a Frostbite Victim.

While the rest of Europe suffered under a record heat wave, back in August 2003, 46 year-old Mike Ball literally froze his foot driving 250 miles with his toes too close to the air conditioning vent in his car.

Ball says, "It was incredibly hot. I slipped off my shoe and sock because my car is an automatic and I don’t need to use my left foot." He adds, "I didn’t realize anything was wrong until the next day when my foot was extremely painful." One of Ball's toes started to turn black and another was blue. He went to his doctor who diagnosed mild frostbite.

Mike did what he thought was reasonable, what was right, but it was the wrong thing to do.
