You mentioned that his hand could not have been saved even if other people were right there. I find this a crucial detail and would like to know from where you got the info.
I consider it important because it really shows that the outcome was not different because he was alone. It also indicates that he did not have to make a Hobsian choice between loosing a hand and loosing his life; since his hand was toast instantly.
The difference was that if a paramedic cut off his hand he would not have gotten the attention that he is now getting.
