LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A 62-year-old construction worker has been flown to a hospital after his stomach was cut with a saw.

Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner says the accident occurred about 8:15 a.m. Wednesday on the west side of Lincoln, where a bridge is being built. The man was working with a circular saw when it caught his clothing and sliced his lower abdomen.

Chief Deputy Jeff Bliemeister says the man was awake and talking with deputies before doctors took him into surgery.

The man’s name hasn’t been released. He works for United Contractors.
