ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. -- A 59-year-old man bled to death after cutting his leg with a circular power saw while doing construction at his home, authorities said.
William Wong grabbed an angle grinder and joined workers whom he'd hired to help demolish his West Bayview Avenue home when he cut his left thigh near the groin, Police Chief Michael Cioffi said.
He was later pronounced dead at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, responders confirmed.
The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration was reviewing the circumstances. Cioffi said Wong had the necessary permits for the work.
