A German actress has been taken to hospital after a performance artist tried to cut her bra off - with a chainsaw.

Former porn star Sibylle Rauch said it was the "worst moment of my life" as the blade cut through her breasts.

"I thought, Sibylle, you're going to die," the actress told Bild newspaper.

The chainsaw operator, Marko Koenig, said Rauch was lying down during the rehearsal on Monday and suddenly bent forward just as he was applying the saw to her bra.
