On the after noon of March 31, when James Valentine, a 21-year-old tree trimmer, was cutting trees on trees, a chainsaw was embedded in his neck by accident.
However, he saved miraculously.

The chainsaw cut his muscles, but his arteries were not cut, so he escaped death.
A co-worker helped him down without yanking the chainsaw out of his neck in order not to bleed any more.
Valentine was sent to Allegheny General Hospital and treated in the ER.

On April 1st, the hospital released the x-ray picture of him with the chainsaw in his neck.

奇跡的に命が助かった。ローズタウンシップで31日午後、森林伐採員のジェームズ・ヴァレンティンさん(21)が木の上で伐採作業をしていた際に、誤ってチェーンソーが首に食い込む事故が起きた。

幸いチェーンソーは筋肉に切り裂いただけで、動脈は無傷だったため一命を取り留めた。同僚が出血を防ぐためにチェーンソーが食い込んだまま、ヴァレンティンさんを木から降ろした。そのままピッツバーグのアレゲニー総合病院に搬送され、ER(緊急救命医療室)で治療を受けた。

同病院は1日、首にチェーンソーが食い込んだヴァレンティンさんのX線写真を公開した。
