According to CBS Pittsburgh, James Valentine, 21, of the Adler Tree Service in Gibsonia, Pa was in a harness trimming a tree when the chainsaw he was using kicked back, embedding the blade in his neck.

Luckily, his coworker quickly pulled him down. A doctor and police on the scene turned off the motor, making sure not to disturb the blade while waiting to take him to a nearby hospital.

CBS Pittsburgh reports the blade hit a muscle, and no major arteries or blood vessels were severed.
