A man was thrown into the wood chipper and was killed on Monday in Davy in a situation that people at the scene called “horrific”.

A man who was gardening all day at Southwest 57th Street and Pine Island Drive in Davy got caught in the tooth of his wooden splitter.

On Tuesday Davy’s police identified the individual as Hernan Gutierrez 42, who lives in Hallandale Beach (photo below).

The entire body of Gutierrez was taken into a wood chipper and the result caused a huge repercussion on police and residents. “I didn’t know what to do, and after a few minutes I can hear all these sirens,” resident Joseph Horta told NBC 6’s Jamie Girola. “It was quite a bit of a shock.
