Type of Incident
:

Pilot was starting his motor, holding the frame with his throttle hand and pulling with the other. It started and immediately went to some amount of power, maybe 25%, but that pushed his hand in a way that pushed more throttle, which quickly cascaded into a high power episode. He tried to stop the motor coming towards him with his other hand and two fingers went through the netting and into the prop before he was able to get to the kill switch. He went to the hospital and at least one of the fingers was not able to be re-attached.
