That sled itself was an accident waiting to happen.
Clamping the board on both sides of the blade was also inviting trouble.
I also think the saw table was too small to hold that board safely.
Also, if the saw was on the floor, were u bending or sitting or otherwise positioned where you were not balanced to have complete control of the sled?
You are very lucky to still have your fingers.
