Viweing it full screen at about 1:45 it's apparent his left index

Anybody know the circumstances on how it happened?
Looks more like he cut a tenon in his finger and or further up his hand,

People do stupid stuff. Usually on TV they preach safety and such,
especially on PBS, but on "Ask This Old House" I saw that contractor guy
Tom actually ripping 3-1/4-inch flooring with a buzz saw while holding
it in his hand!
How many times, on HGTV or other stations that should know better, do
you see contractors or others cutting wood on a table saw without a
fence or miter gauge? Just shoving it through the blade.
It is stupid, dangerous and producers should know better.
Jig it up. Drill a line of holes in a piece of scrap, rip to the
halfway mark, round off the sharp points between them, and clamp that
on the board you want to scallop. Mount your circle cutter on your
router and use that to keep it from moving much. Clamp a rounded stick
to the top of the router to interface with the scalloped jig board.
Now run the thing down the line. (notso)Instant scalloped edge.
Play with the depth, width, and different bit sizes and profiles to
get the edge you want.
Life is an escalator:
You can move forward or backward;
