I was doing yard work yesterday and decided to speed up the process. As I clipped the tops off the overgrown hedges, I’d reach for the cut portion and toss it into a neat pile.
Unfortunately, I managed to grab the branch, snip the cord to the clippers, and nearly cut off the top of a finger in the process.
After a few hours in the ER for an EKG, x rays, and stitches, I reconsidered my ‘time-saving’ plan. I have a whole new level of respect for the wallop of electricity in those cords!
