I was almost killed in a similar manner in 1974. Tree work is dangerous.
I know somebody who WASN’T killed. Even worse.
A huge storm in Ohio brought an entire tree down on my rented house in the middle of night, slicing my bedroom clean in two. Thankfully I was out of town, otherwise I wouldn’t be typing this. Living near trees is dangerous...they’ve got it out for us.
It sure is. As a born and bred Steeler fan, I remember the death of former Steeler guard Steve Courson. As per Wikipedia"Courson stayed near Pittsburgh for the rest of his life. In November 2005, he died in an accident at his home in Farmington, Pennsylvania. Courson had been cutting down a 44-foot (13 m) tree on his property, but a gust of wind changed the direction of its fall, and he moved into its path while attempting to prevent his dog from being struck. The dog, a black Labrador retriever, was found alive guarding Courson's body when the tree was removed."
