This is one of those urban-legend types of stories that no one ever has proof of — except in this case there’s not only proof but video, an eyewitness, and damage to a nearby home. A concrete-cutting saw blade comes off this saw and makes a beeline towards a nearby home — sounds like something from a John Woo film.
Luckily, no one was injured, but watching the guy retrieve the blade and slap it back on, most likely the same crappy way he installed it the first time, got me to wondering if he’d ever read the manual at all.
We’re guessing after the phone call from the city and the video hitting the news this guy had a very lively call with his superiors.
