- The incident happened on Sunday at Craft Ax Throwing in Springfield, Missouri
A flying ax narrowly missed the head of a man after he bounced off the target at an assaulting rod in Missouri.
The Springfield bar's 10-second clip had the man grab hold of his head and duck just in time to see the projectile fly back on Saturday.
Before the incident, he saw himself slowly align with the target, holding the ax above his head with two hands, and practicing the waving movement.
After another pitcher returned to a separate stable, he released the weapon and let it fly into the bottom of the wall.
The unnamed man stands in line to throw the ax (left) to a Craft Ax Throwing location, presumably in Springfield, Missouri. After releasing the projectile, it suddenly hits the bottom of the wall and bounces back to him (right)

Suddenly the rotating ax bounced back on him. Fortunately he could get out of the way before it hit him.
& # 39; Whoa … sh * t & # 39 ;, the cameraman shouted, the ax hovering over the thrower's head and bouncing across the floor.
There was a rattling noise as the weapon kept bouncing along the floor tiles to the bar.
The man who threw the ax looked bewildered as he slowly walked back to the cameraman.
