I was a teenager and was with a group of folks trying to hand start one of those big ole single cylinder, double flywheel engines at the local Steam engine show. We would roll the flywheels one way, then roll them the other, while the man that knew what he was doing worked the choke and gas controls. Well, it fired, and I didn't get around to turning loose of the spokes in the flywheel.
Next thing I know I was horizontal in the air getting ready to fall right down into the connecting rod. One of the men helping reached up and grabbed me by the back of the belt as I was heading up. He pulled me back from the jaws of death.
When it was over I looked down and there was green paint from the flywheel on the beltbuckle of my belt.
Thank you John Grahm for saving me.
