A tree worker died after he became trapped beneath a stump grinder on April 7, 2021, in Jacksonville, Florida.
The tree-company employee was working by himself in the backyard of a residence using a stump grinder between the house and a hedge. The grinder apparently fell on top of the man, or he otherwise became stuck under it, and he called out for help. A resident found the man trapped under the machine and called police. His injuries were extensive enough that the accident was fatal, according to the Florida Times-Union report.
