    Just goes to show you; sometimes you should just stand your ground and watch what is happening around you rather than trying to scramble in a panic.

    When felling an iffy tree...

    It would really help to have first removed all body mounted encumbrances.

    I think anyone in that situation would be in panic mode. That happens so fast and can kill you in a second. You only have time to react, not stand there and think about. The only mistake I see is he may not have planned his escape route well, or forgot it in the moment. He likely wouldn't have expected the tree doing that, as it was only rotten in the centre.
