A buzzsaw being used in construction in Midtown Manhattan broke off its machine and went flying down the sidewalk.
NBC New York reports that the construction team was working on a project for the city, which involved tearing up the street to get to a water main. Unfortunately, the machine malfunctioned, sending the three-foot blade soaring down the sidewalk.
Matthew Bisi told NBC New York the following…
“I was on the right side of the sidewalk, suddenly everyone started yelling ‘Get down! Move!’ It was just like crazy chaos. People screaming, all the construction workers.”
Matthew managed to get out of the way, but not everyone was as lucky. The flying buzzsaw hit a woman and left a nasty cut to her leg. The woman was rushed to the hospital.
Check out the security cam footage. You might need to watch it a few times to spot the buzzsaw. It’s moving at such a high rate of speed.
Witness Sean Kuiland says it was like something out of a horror movie…
“It was huge. It looked like it was from a horror flick. I couldn’t believe it. It took her right down, gashes on the side of the thigh.”
And now I am afraid to walk outside my house. It’s time to invest in a well trained dog who can go fetch my mail.
