This camera security footage captured yesterday shows a 3-foot circular saw flying from a water pipe construction site and across a sidewalk full of people at 48th Street and Ninth Avenue, in New York. The buzz saw traveled for about 100 feet before hitting a tree and then a woman, cutting her leg.

Although the buzzsaw cannot be seen clearly in the footage above, you can watch the unsuspecting pedestrians running in panic. It is a miracle that nobody died. The woman was knocked to the ground and was taken to Bellevue Hospital with a gash on her leg.
