Not only is this X-Ray 100% real, the guy in question can't wait to pick up a chainsaw again!

James Valentine, a 21-year-old tree trimmer, was up a ladder when his chainsaw struck him in the neck, cutting deep into his muscles. Incredibly, he missed all of the major arteries and is expected to make a full recovery.

Man survives chainsaw stuck in neck

 “The chainsaw came back at me and got stuck in my neck. Soon as I got down … Just seeing the blood just squirting out, that was crazy.”

His colleagues ran to his aid, leaving the saw in James's neck to stop him from bleeding - and their clever thinking may have saved his life.

After being rushed to the hospital and having the offending blade removed, James is resting up before he gets back in the saddle (or should we say harness).  “I am a tree climber; that’s what I do.”
