    1mm from death: Tree surgeon almost beheaded himself with chainsaw after slicing through more than a third of his neck

    A man who almost beheaded himself in a chainsaw accident has spoken today about how he was only minutes from bleeding to death.

    Tree surgeon Tom Connelly, 21, had to hold his head on to survive after he cut through more than a third of his neck and severed his jugular vein in the accident at work in April.

    His foot slipped when he was cutting a branch 50ft up a tree and he slid into the 12 inch blade, slashing his neck and left arm.

    If nothing else, at least he'll have some interesting scars.

    He survived and that's the best thing anyone could have hoped for.

    Crazy that he survived! Fast action on everyone's part helped.

    I can't believe he survived though. 1/3 of the neck D:

    Ive always joked about cutting my head off with a chain saw,
    and to know that it actually happens kinda takes away the humor from it.
