(WJBK) -- A Michigan man reportedly escaped serious injury after a falling tree branch knocked him off a ladder.

Video uploaded to YouTube over the weekend shows the man atop a ladder using a chainsaw to trim a large branch off a tree. Before the cut he yells to onlookers below, "Get of there guys, I don't want to hit nobody."

As the branch hit the grounds, it bounces, strikes him and sends him plummeting nearly 20 feet to the ground.

The person filming the mishap, which is believed to have happened in Flint, Mich., can be heard asking if she should call 911 before running inside to presumably do so.

Metro News reports Kurt Stepp, who uploaded to video to YouTube, confirmed that nobody was seriously injured.
