Lumberjack keeps his head

From: NPE
A lumberjack narrowly escaped a fatal end with his chainsaw while climbing a tree.

Tomas Majerczyka, 22, was trimming branches in the forest near his house in Szczawnica when the incident took place.

While climbing a tree, he slipped from a branch and tumbled to the ground, the chainsaw landing on his neck.

“It’s a miracle that he is alive. He will be in hospital for some time but his condition seems stable,” said Przemyslaw Maslowski, head surgeon at the hospital.
