A verb and a noun...

You never wanna see in the same sentence... amputate + woodchipper.

-- MONTREAL — A firefighter was forced to saw off the arm of a Quebec man caught in an industrial wood chipper.

The French-language television network TQS says the 23-year-old victim was working at a factory south of Montreal when his left arm became trapped in the machine.

Firefighters and ambulance technicians were the first to respond to the accident in late August, and quickly judged the man's arm had to be amputated.

The network reported that local police even went to see about renting a saw at a nearby hardware store, though firefighters eventually used one of their own.
