Tree Trimmer Miraculously Survives After Chain Saw Gets Stuck in His Neck [VIDEO, PHOTO]

Chain Saw in neck  x-ray

A tree trimmer is recovering after he was rushed to a Pittsburgh hospital with a chain saw blade embedded in his neck.

James Valentine was in a tree in Ross Township on Monday afternoon when he was struck in the neck by the saw. Another worker helped him down, and his co-workers left the saw in place to try to limit the bleeding.

Fox 4 News reports that Sgt. Ben Dripps of the Ross Township Police Department said, ”It sounds bad and that’s what happened. A chainsaw into the neck is bad and it sounds bad and it’s accurate. He’s very lucky that his co-worker was able to react as quickly as he did or it could have been a very different scenario.”

Valentine had emergency surgery at Allegheny General Hospital. Doctors say the saw missed major arteries and instead cut into muscle. The hospital released the amazing X-ray image seen above showing the saw still in the 21-year-old’s neck.

Valentine works for Adler Tree Service in Gibsonia. Owner Dominic Migliozzi calls the rescue “amazing.”
