DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Police say a landscaper is dead after being dragged through a wood chipper in South Florida.

Davie police spokesman Dale Engle said officers and fire rescue personnel responded to the area Monday afternoon, but it was obvious that the victim was already dead.

Engle says the victim and two other people were clearing brush with the industrial wood chipper when the apparent work accident occurred.

There was no immediate suspicion of foul play, but police were still trying to determine exactly what happened. The victim's name wasn't immediately released.
