Kind of funny is a sick sort of way. Ladder safety should be a
priority. Recently had a neighbor take a nasty fall.
She pulled her SUV up to a tree, placed a rug on the car and used it
to support an extension ladder. She then proceeded to trim branches.
The result was predictable, the ladder slipped on the car / rug and
she fell a good 10 ft with momentum. She broke 8 ribs, collar bone,
cracked 3 vertebrae tore the left rotator cup and punctured a lung.
She crawled to a phone and called me, I took one look at her and
called 911. She was in a hospital for a month and is still in a rehab
facility, 3 months predicted recovery time, & no guarantee she will
ever regain full use of her left arm. Safety first kids
Not to speak of, the first branch to fall took the saw and operator
with it. I suspect she was leaning into it and when the saw went
through the pitiful 1" branch, the only resistance to her leaning went
away quickly and disastrously. Luckily she was using a cordless
sawzall & not a gas chainsaw. She actually was contemplating
purchasing a gas chainsaw a year or so ago, & I talked her out of it.
