Worker Amputates Thumb Tip With Circular Saw
On July 21, 2012, an employee was working as a construction laborer for a framing contractor. The worker was a sole owner with no employees. He was using an electric circular saw to rip a 2-inch by 4-inch (50-millimeter by 100-millimeter) piece of wood, when the saw slipped and cut off the tip of the thumb on his left hand. He was transported by ambulance to the local medical center for evaluation, treatment, and surgery. Following that, he was released to home and a return to work.
