Logger Barely Escapes Injury From A Random Tree Fall
Being a logger is considered one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics declared it the most dangerous job in the United States in 2014.
With approximately 91 deaths per 100,000 workers, it’s one of the hardest and deadliest jobs out there. Despite careful planning, loggers using handheld power saws are often at the mercy of trees falling in a direction that they did not predict.
That’s what happened with this logger, who was using a power saw to cut down a tree. He worked his way around the base of a huge tree, when all of a sudden the tree seemingly splinters off and explodes! Heavy pieces of tree are falling in every direction, but this lucky logger manages to jump and roll out of the way of all of them.
This was a close call, and so fortunate that it turned out OK! It seems like this tree was quite rotten, so it seems as if he was cutting it down in order to avoid running on some poor hiker or jogger.
It seems like someone was looking out for this guy!
Even with careful planning and strict regulations, many workers in different fields face dangerous working conditions. This window washer — and the lift he was harnessed into — came crashing toward a skyscraper because of a big gust of wind! Though everyone was OK, it was probably terrifying going back to work the next day. These scientists faced an avalanche after the earthquake in Nepal, but thankfully had the training needed to survive it.
