Kevin Murphy from Manchester, Pennsylvania had been a tree trimmer for decades. On his 49th birthday, he slipped and cut his neck on a chainsaw.
It left a gash on his neck where he received 80 stitches. It took around 3-4 hours to stitch up his wound.
According to Murphy, the cut was 1 cm from his carotid artery and 2 cm from his jugular vein. It is a miracle that he survived.
Murphy considers this his a second chance. “Honestly, this wasn’t my time,” he says.
He told CNN that he would like to spend more time with his family after this life changing accident.
