A woman was hit by a flying buzzsaw as she walked past a construction site in New York City on Tuesday.
Construction workers were tearing up a street to fix a water main in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan when the buzzsaw flew off, the local NBC affiliate reports. The saw traveled about 100 feet and hit a tree before hitting a passerby in the leg. A police spokesperson said she was taken to Bellevue hospital to be treated for minor injuries.
“It was huge,” a witness, Sean Kulian, told NBC of the buzzsaw. “It looked like it was from a horror flick. I couldn’t believe it.”
“I just turned, kinda ducked, put my head down, thing came flying right by my head, missed me by that much,” said Matthew Bisi, another witness. “You could hear it coming and it went right by me.”
