A 68-year-old grandfather accidentally sliced his face in half with a chainsaw and drove himself to the hospital after “tying his head together.”
Bill Singleton, was chopping wood on his property in Ballarat, near Melbourne, Australia, when he lost control of his chainsaw on May 6.
The farmer, who looked like “something out of a science fiction movie”, desperately made his way to his car and started driving to the nearest hospital because he was unable to call for an ambulance after slicing his tongue in half.
