Woman Struck by Flying Saw Blade in Manhattan

A woman was hit while casually walking through the streets of midtown Manhattan, by a flying saw blade near a construction site.

Witnesses described the incident as a “freak accident” and “a scene out of a horror movie.”

As we can see from the video, people walking behind and in front of her immediately ducked as soon as they heard the screams, then ran to check on the injured woman. The quick flash in the video on the left side of the screen is the blade speeding through the air towards the handful of frantic pedestrians.

Although the woman only suffered minor injuries, the fact that a saw blade went flying 100 feet in the air before slicing her leg open is terrifying enough. This crazy accident has caused construction for that particular construction site to be halted.
