Greg Norman, an Australian golfer, and former No.1 ranked golfer in the world, had quite a scare this weekend when he had a chainsaw accident and came close to severing his hand. I think it’s an important reminder to everyone that safety should always be first and foremost when handling a chainsaw. Be careful, be safe and don’t be a statistic.

Greg Norman is recovering in hospital after almost cutting off his hand with a chainsaw.
Australia’s former world No1 posted a photo to Instagram on Sunday in which he was lying in a hospital bed with his left arm heavily bandaged. Norman issued a warning alongside the photo and suggested he had gone close to severing one of his hands.
“Working with a chainsaw ALWAYS be respectful of the unexpected. I was one lucky man today. Damaged, but not down & out. Still have left hand,” he wrote.
Norman last week posted a photo of himself working with a chainsaw to cut back a small tree at what appears to be one of his seaside properties.
