One Brazilian man was just chopping some wood when something terrible happened. Luckily he survived to tell the tale.

We wouldn’t have recommended cutting wood with an angle grinder before and we definitely won’t be recommending it now.

Brazilian farmer Gregory Steinmedc was doing his thing when the power tool slipped and lodged itself 10cm into his stomach. Amazingly it didn’t cut through anything vital and after his wife Frida did some quick first aid and got him to the nearest hospital, Gregory lived to tell the tale.

The smartest thing Frida did was leave the saw in as it could have caused a hemorrhage and the doctors in Santa Rosa praised her for saving her husband’s life.

And Gregory won’t be going near an angle grinder, or anything like that for that matter, anytime soon.

"Never again. That I swear and I stand by that. I will not use them anymore. I can see that it is dangerous," he is quoted as saying in The Sun.
