Logger Starts to Cut Down Old Tree. Keep an Eye on the Orange Stripe... TERRIFYING!

Logging is one of the most dangerous jobs in the world, but one logger managed to escape being a statistic. As he was cutting down a tree, the entire massive trunk split and began falling in different directions. He was incredibly nimble and managed to escape what could have been a serious injury or death.

A video was being filmed of the logger at work. The tree was marked for cutting down, and the logger used his chainsaw to begin cutting it. Before he finished cutting the tree all the way through, however, it split right up the trunk.

Half of the massive tree fell one way, half fell another way, and another large chunk of it fell straight down. The logger jumps and dodges, preventing himself from getting squashed under the massive chunks.

The tree probably had some kind of wood rot, which caused it to seemingly explode when its trunk was weakened enough. This guy was lucky this time. That’s life when you have a dangerous job, however—you have to take it one day, or one moment, at a time. It’s good if you can think on your feet.
