A man tried to kill himself with a wood chipper in Roseville Thursday afternoon.
The crew of a tree repair service company was clearing trees in a public area when the man appeared and jumped head-first into the industrial-sized wood chipper.
The workers immediately turned off the machines and called 911.
The man was rushed to Regions Hospital in St. Paul where he remains in the intensive care unit. Officials say he suffered severe, life-threatening injuries to his head and torso.
Roseville Police said the incident was likely a suicide attempt, noting that the man did not leave a note or any indication of his intentions. http://www.kstp.com/article/stories/S446543.shtml?cat=1
