A Versailles man died in a chainsaw accident Monday.
Ronald Neil King, 64, was on a ladder trimming some brush or bushes behind his home on Montgomery Avenue when the chainsaw slipped, cutting his left arm and severing an artery, said Woodford County Coroner Steve Ward.
King's neighbor heard him yelling and came to his aid but did not have a telephone, Ward said.
Another neighbor called an ambulance about 2:45 p.m., and King was taken to Bluegrass Community Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
King's wife, Susan King, was not at home at the time of the accident, Ward said.
Arrangements were incomplete Monday night at Blackburn and Ward Funeral Home in Versailles.
