These stories really make you think... <snip>... Sometimes I wonder if I should be dropping trees at all when something like that happens to a trained, experienced, professional.
A couple days ago a Virginia logger was injured while he was cutting a tree. A large limb fell out of the tree toward him. Evidently he heard it, looked up and put the running chainsaw up over his head to ward off the blow. My guess its that it was a reflex action. The saw was slammed down onto his hard hat by the falling limb. Cut through his hardhat and into his skull. Last I heard today was he was still alive but in serious condition.
