Things took a dangerous turn on "Ax Men" for Gabe Rygaard. He was nearly crushed by a massive falling tree when the tailhold broke on the machine the men use. Gabe was lucky he was quick on his feet as he was about to dodge out of the way of the tree before it crashed to the ground.
Luckily, no one was killed in the accident, but it did slow their work for the day down to a grinding halt. The narrator explained that it would take the rest of the day to repair.
It doesn't matter how well-trained you are, or how much experience you have, sometimes things are just downright dangerous.
