Pedestrian Hit by Flying Buzzsaw in Midtown Manhattan A pedestrian walking past a crew tearing up a Manhattan street was struck by a flying buzzsaw Tuesday, police said. The construction company, which was doing work for the city, was tearing up the roadway to fix a water main at 48th Street and Ninth Avenue when the saw flew into the air. Matthew Bisi was walking when the 3-foot blade "came shooting down the sidewalk." "I was on the right side of the sidewalk, suddenly everyone started yelling 'Get down! Move!'" he said. "It was just like crazy chaos. People screaming, all the construction workers." "I just turned, kinda ducked, put my head down," he said. "Thing came flying right by my head, missed me by that much. You could hear it coming and it went right by me," he said. Another witness, Sean Kuilan, also recalled the sound of the blade. "I hear the blade and see the blade literally coming off the machine," he said. "It was huge. It looked like it was from a horror flick. I couldn't believe it." It traveled about 100 feet before hitting a tree and then the pedestrian "straight on," according to Bisi. "It took her right down, gashes on the side of the thigh," he said. "The force of that coming in was pretty hard." Kuilan said he saw the woman hit by the buzzsaw on the floor, screaming. She was taken to the hospital. "It was scary," said Bisi. "I'm like twitching now just thinking about it. You don't expect to see that or have that happen to you."
