From the Daily Mail: " A tree surgeon was killed when his chainsaw was pushed back into his neck and shoulder by a powerful branch.

Adam Baldock, 27, fell 20ft from a tree after the chainsaw was forced into the left side of his neck as he worked in Mitcham, Surrey.

It is thought that he was trying to remove a large branch which sprang back on the industrial saw and pushed it back towards him.

His death is not being treated as suspicious."
