Horrific DIY Accident: Married Man Accidentally Sliced Through His Own Neck With An Angle Grinder Saw While Fixing His House
A married man accidentally sliced through his own neck with an angle grinder saw while fixing his house. The horrific DIY accident happened at his family home in Samut Prakan province, Thailand. The victim who has been identified as Suwan Ladee, 54, was doing DIY work on the property in Samut Prakan province, Thailand, on February 28 but while standing on scaffolding, he reached above him as he changed wooden beams infested with termites but tragically slipped, dropping on an angle grinder saw.
Sadly, Suwan Ladee did not have a protective cover around the blade directly onto his neck. It’s understood that the circular saw sliced through his throat, cutting down to his chest. His wife Nong, 52, said:
“My husband was working with four other people, working all together to fix that house and get rid of the termites.
“I’d just gone into the kitchen to prepare lunch for everyone then heard the problem.
“The saw had hit him then he fell down from the scaffolding.”
According to Deputy Inspector Police Captain Weerapol Soodsaikaew, from Prapradaeng police station:
“Rescuers arrived at the house and found Mr Ladee at the front of the house with a large cut in his neck down to his chest.
“Mr Ladee’s wife was with him and she was crying.
“We are speaking with her and the other people working on the home to investigate what happened.”
