It is about saving lives, starting with mine." (A line from a tv series)
(Context: He talks about time travel to save lives including his life.)
I can't understand how that participle works here. I think it "starting" describes the "saving lives" but I am not sure if a participle can modify a noun phrase (or participle phrase I don't know which is correct) "saving lives".
I think it means: It is about saving lives and "saving life" starts with mine.
If it modifies "saving life", can I rewrite the sentence as:
It is about saving lives, which starts with mine.
