Jack Weir was clearing trees in his family farm with a Bobcat when a large cottonwood hit back and impaled him with a piece of wood 20 feet long and 6 inches thick.
What happened next was nothing short of a miracle:
A broken limb came flying in under the roll bar, spearing Jack through the belly with a piece of wood 20 feet long and six inches thick.
"I've always had a pretty high tolerance for pain. I had no pain, I had none," Wier said.
Still, he knew the situation was desperate. That's when Jack remembered the military mantra he relied on during his 38 years in the army.
"You define the problem...you identify alternatives... you accumulate relevant information... and then you make a decision. My problem was I got this tree in me," explained the tree accident victim.
