A woman was struck this morning by a circular blade that shot off a worker’s saw at 9th Avenue near 48th Street, sending her to the hospital. The blade shot off the job repairing a water main around 8:30 a.m., bouncing off the curb and sailing 10 feet into the air before crashing down on the leg of the 43-year-old woman, police said. She was taken to Bellevue Hospital with minor physical injuries, though the trauma will almost certainly linger for years–hers, as well as everyone else forced to witness the terrifying ordeal.
