A Florida man died Monday after falling into a giant wood chipper.
The unidentified landscaper was working with two other men near a Davie home when he somehow ended up inside the machine. Police arriving at the scene were horrified and needed grief counselors to cope, according to reports.
I’ve been in police work 20 years. I’ve never seen anything like this,’ Davie Police Captain Dale Engle told the Sun-Sentinel. ‘It was a gruesome scene.’
It was so bad it messed up the POLICE officers.
If you’ve ever seen these big machines going, they can easily pull branches that weigh hundreds of pounds into the chipped and turn the whole thing into mulch.
Useful tools for getting rid of scrap wood and felled trees, but also can be VERY deadly.
