Moreover, she had apparently cut off an artery. Due to the perfuse bleeding, Ariel Winter's boyfriend had to take her to the hospital. Her boyfriend even carried along her fingertip that she had accidentally chopped off. The Modern Family actor then revealed the "best" part of the story. When they arrived at the hospital, her boyfriend gave the severed thumb tip to a nurse. The nurse then put the tip into a plastic bag, but did not tell the couple what was inside. 

The Modern Family actor thought that the bag was just waste, so she accidentally threw away her own thumb. Luckily, the thumb was recovered and Ariel Winter found the whole story "very funny" in hindsight. The Modern Family actor confirmed that she was fine now, though she had lost the use of her thumb and bled a lot when she first cut herself.
