    I fell and torn it originally, but think I finished it off picking up our 16 month old son.

    Oh My God all that from holding a drill. Could you explain to me one more time how it happened, so I don't ever make that same mistake ? Hope you have a speedy recovery.

    So I was using a 1/2" dewalt corded drill with a side handle. I was drilling a hole in a nema 12 box with a 1" unibit. I needed a 1" hole. The bit caught. The drill spun and my left hand got twisted in the handle and broke my middle finger in three places.
