My Fox Philly reported that a Michigan man escaped serious injury after a falling tree branch knocked him off of a ladder. The guy was nicknamed “Q-Ball” and he was being taped cutting a branch. The video has received mixed reactions since being posted on YouTube. You can kind of tell from the beginning that something is about to go wrong. In the viral video a man is standing on a ladder yelling, “I don’t want to hit anybody, is everybody good?”

He then proceeds to use a chain saw to cut the large branch. As it is falling, the branch knocks him completely off of the ladder and sends him crashing to the ground.


“My coworker cuts down a tree and the tree is not very happy about it,” Kurt Stepp, who posted the video to YouTube, wrote in the description, according to the Huffington Post.

The Daily Mail UK reported that, apparently unsure if the incident is serious, a woman, who appears to be the video’s cameraman, is heard yelling ‘F***! 911 or not?’

According to Metro News, Kurt Stepp, who uploaded to video to YouTube, confirmed that nobody was seriously injured. Some people think that the video is hilarious; others say it should be a lesson to others that some people just shouldn’t try to do certain things on their own.
