A man who got a grinder embedded in his chest over the weekend is in a stable condition in hospital this morning.
The Palmerston North rescue helicopter was called to Dannevirke at noon yesterday after a 47-year-old man was injured when the grinder he was working with "kicked back" and cut into his chest.
He was flown to Wellington Hospital, where he had surgery. He was in a stable condition this morning, a hospital spokesman said.
Later yesterday an Eketahuna man, 34, was pruning trees when he injured an arm in a chainsaw accident. He was flown to Palmerston North Hospital in a stable condition.
