Hooray for Misplaced Modifiers!

I love the way the above caption, circled, and taken from today's Fox News homepage, reads: "A man uses a chainsaw during tornado cleanup after twisters ripped Plains states, killing at least three." My first thought: How could they just stand there while he killed three people with that thing???

I've seen much more egregious manglings. How would you have re-phrased it?

How about "Man kills three people with chainsaw after twisters ripped through Plains states". I wouldn't want the poor innocent tornado getting blamed for this man's shenanigans, after all.
