Man Slips, Cuts His Neck On Chainsaw And Survives

A tree trimmer slips and cuts himself on his own chainsaw.

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.
