HARVARD — A workman sliced off three fingers while working at a table saw in Harvard, according to a published report.
The Harvard Press reports a contractor believed to be in his mid-40s injured himself while working on a Warren Avenue home. A co-worker attempted to drive the injured man to the hospital but pulled over instead and called 911. Harvard Ambulance with MedStar Advanced Life Support aboard transported the man to UMass Medical Center in Worcester.
Responding emergency personnel conducted a search of the grounds to try to locate the man’s severed fingers. No hard tissue was found around the job site.
Harvard Police Chief Edward Denmark said he could provide no information.
Harvard Fire Chief Richard Sicard did respond to say that his department had no involvement in the response, despite the fact that a firetruck was parked on Massachusetts Avenue during the event.
