There are close calls, and then there's this.

Daniel Miller found himself trapped up to his nose in a water hole, after his excavator fell on him while working solo in Australia.

Miller was pinned there for hours, unable to call for help.

He was only rescued when a neighbor came looking for him later that evening.

Despite his ordeal, Miller wasn't seriously hurt.
