A man in his 40’s was injured by a wood chipper. He was feeding fern tree stumps into the mouth of the machine when his clothes got hooked and it pulled him in hip first. The teeth of the feed wheels tore chunks of flesh from his upper leg and hip then spat him out where he landed on the ground. A homeowner heard the muffled scream from the man and rushed to his aid. Neighbors applied pressure to the wounds until authorities arrived.
