As miserable as this would be, I am really curious as to what tool he was using and how the hell he did this…

probably a skilsaw ,
brought it back to his lap ,
after a cut .
some guys also
open the guard
with a shim .

doesn’t sound like much fun ,
and your project splashed with blood .

think of all the sanding !

Maybe he was on the table saw using “it” for a push stick?

At any rate, the only combination worse than drinking and driving is nudity and woodworking. :-)

After using a hand-held circular saw he placed it on the floor, the guard blade was stuck and saw became airborne.
OUCH indeed.

Maybe his mind was on other things… thus distracting his attention and also prepping the appendage for cutting.

Unfortunately, where I grew up, something like this would not be unheard of. Usually when you heard of something like this, just before it happened you would here “Hey yall, hold my beer and watch this!”
