A tree lopper suffered an horrific accident while he was suspended up in a tree in Frenchs Forest earlier this week.
Police say the 31-year old man from Hinchinbrook was working on a tree in John Oxley Drive around midday on Monday when the accident occurred.
The man had been using harnesses, ropes, chainsaws and other specialised equipment to climb the tree and remove the branches, but while he was cutting the branch using the chainsaw, the saw bounced back at him and cut his left arm.
The man was able to get to his first aid kit which was attached to his belt and perform first aid on himself.
It’s understood he used a bandage to cover his arm to stop the bleeding.
He then lowered himself down from the tree and wait for the ambulance to arrive.
Police say the man was conscious although he had lost a lot of blood.
A spokesman from NSW Ambulance said the man was taken to Royal North Shore hospital for treatment.
It’s understood he’s since been released.
