The man who impaled himself in the neck at the quarry off Outer Circle Road is now recovering in hospital.
He was taken there by the coast guard helicopter on Friday night after he suffered the injury in an accident.
Emergency services attended the site to rescue the man.
He told The Lincolnite that he fell off his pushbike and impaled himself in the neck with a tree branch.
While first responders attended to him, the man managed to video call his friend to show him the injury.
But it wasn’t long until the coast guard helicopter landed and took him for hospital treatment, where he is still recovering after surgery to remove the tree branch.
Be advised, graphic photo showing injury follows.
Despite the circumstances, great teamwork displayed once again by all the emergency services tonight in Lincoln. Proud to be part of it. @what3words capability really helped. #Team999 @LincsPolice @LincsFireRescue North @HMCoastguard Humberside @EMASNHSTrust Lincoln @LNAACT pic.twitter.com/ecNhluqQYd
