    Man killed in wood chipper accident

    A 30-year-old man was killed this afternoon when he was sucked into a wood chipper while trying to shake loose a piece of wood that had jammed it.

    The man owned a tree service company working in the 8900 block of 26th Ave. in Pleasant Prairie, according to a Pleasant Prairie Police Department press release.

    The man was using his foot to clear debris that had jammed the wood chipper around 5:20 p.m. when his foot became entangled in the machine, witnesses told police.

    His coworkers tried to rescue him from the intake, but he was pulled into and through the wood chipper, according to the release.

    The incident remains under investigation by Pleasant Prairie detectives, the Kenosha County Medical Examiner's office and officials from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

    Police withheld the man's name while they attempted to notify his family.

    A few years ago, we had a guy get sucked into a metal shredder at a large salvage yard. It was used to shred junk cars, so you can imagine what it did to him.

    We had a case a few years ago where a guy went into a diabetic coma and fell into a chipper at a saw mill. Only found his lunch box at first, then had to recall chip trucks from all over North Idaho and Montana to try to recover the pieces. Not very pretty
    Any day above ground is a fine day indeed!

    My God... what a grisly scene for those people who tried to help him, and subsequently, the rescue workers.

    that got to be one of the worst scenes to work.
    i know i'm sick but it reminds me of a joke.
    why do you put a baby in the blender feet first?




    so you can watch their expressions.

    told you i was sick.

    Um I have a sick sense of humor, but where's the funny in that?!

    I can't even begin to imagine the cases of PTSD that poor guy's coworkers will have...

    Jesus. I couldn't imagine the horror of going that way. Poor bastard went feet first. I couldn't even imagine the pain or the screams.

    His co-workers are going to be mentally fucked for the rest of their lives.

    I feel for them all.

    Question

    Can you imagine Crime Scene showing up on that? That would take weeks to seperate bone fragments from tree fragments.

    I have one stupid question: Why did he NOT turn off the machine to un-jam it?
