Man falls face-first towards chainsaw… on live TV


A near-miss which saw a man using a chainsaw fall towards the blade and nearly cut his face open was caught on live TV in the US.


WTVW man Drew Gardner had been reporting on storm damage in Illinois as a worker used the chainsaw on a downed tree in the background.

But then in a moment which will have had eagle-eyed viewer terrified, the man -- who wasn't wearing protective clothing -- fell in a ditch and towards the chainsaw he was holding.

Luckily he somehow managed to avoid cutting off his face and corrected his fall at the last second… depriving the news show of a scoop.
