Farmer Impales Himself with Circular Saw

A farmer cutting some firewood with a powerful electric circular saw swears he’ll never touch a power tool again after the blade slipped and buried itself in his stomach. Gregory Steinmedc, 56,a Brazilian farmer from Campina Mission amazingly survived the horrific accident. He was rushed to a hospital 30 miles from his remote home with the electric saw blade still jammed 10cm deep in to his flesh. The farmer used the circular saw to cut firewood in the shed home when he suffered the accident. He called to his wife Frida for help, she had learned some first aid during a driving course. Gregory said that Santa Rose hospital was two hours away, and he had to make the trip with the saw still attached to his stomach. He said: ‘I had faith. I am strong – not afraid to die.’ [Source] I guess sometimes it helps to have some extra blubber around the middle!
