A Brazilian farmer has miraculously survived after getting a circular power saw stuck in his stomach.

Gregory Steinmedc, a 56-year-old from Campina das Missoes, was cutting wood when the saw slipped and dug itself nearly 4 inches into Steinmedc’s stomach.

His wife Frida helped stop the bleeding caused by the blade, which missed Steinmedc’s vital organs, according to The Sun.

The saw was removed after a two-hour operation at a hospital in Santa Rosa.

Steinmedc said after the operation that he’ll never use a power saw again, The Sun reports.
