“@ CakeBossBuddy’s family are using home safety footage to guide us through the terrifying moments of his debilitating hand accident,” the network tweeted.
In the clip, Valastro’s brother-in-law, Joey Faugno, stops in a car in front of the house, amid cries from the family for help.
“I got out of the car and heard my sister-in-law Lisa scream. “Help my husband! Help my man Oh my god help my man! Call 911! “That’s all I heard,” said Faugno.
Faugno, a licensed paramedic and firefighter, ran into the house and ran down the stairs where Valastro, the reality star owned by Carlos’ bakery in Hoboken, New Jersey, was being held by a bowling machine.
“It looked like his hand was stuck in the back of the bowling machine and I saw it go through his hand,” Faugno said.
Valastro’s son Buddy Jr. . The 16-year-old was standing at the bowling machine and said his father was trying to fix the problem when his hand was stuck in the machine and went a little through his hand.
“It was bleeding all over the place. Blood on the needles, still blood everywhere. We cleaned as much as possible, ”he said as the camera zoomed in on some of the pens.
“Buddy spent some time with his family bowling on Sunday,” a spokesman for Carlo’s Bakery told TODAY Food after the accident in September.
“There was a malfunction with the bowling pinsetter, a common solution in the past but it turned into a terrible accident. After trying to loosen the bowling pin from the cage mechanism, his right hand got stuck in the device and squeezed together. ”
Faugno then explained how they used a saw to remove a small piece of the mechanism, which “did the trick. ”
“I was petrified,” said Valastro’s daughter Sofia. “I was so scared. I couldn’t even see anything. I didn’t know what was going to happen to his hand or what was going to happen. I didn’t know if he was going to lose a finger. I didn’t know if he was going to lose three. ”
“Is that a dream?” Valastro’s wife Lisa said in a clip from the E! News showing how he got out of the hospital surrounded by his family.
“I’m so mad at myself,” Valastro recalled. “Buddy, my hand is everything to me,” he said to his son.
