    SALEM, Conn. -- A 6-year-old boy helping his father on a landscaping job during school vacation was killed Tuesday after getting pulled into a wood chipper, state police said.
    Jeffrey Bourgeois was putting a branch in the chipper at about 8:45 a.m. when it yanked him into the machine after his father momentarily turned his back, said Lt. J. Paul Vance, a state police spokesman. The accident happened at a home in Salem, a town of about 4,000 people nearly 30 miles southeast of Hartford.
    Vance said the accident was so terrible that grief counselors were called to the scene.
    "The little guy was apparently trying to help his dad," Vance said. "It's a very tragic and difficult scene for everybody."
    Jeffrey and his two older siblings were with their father, Scott Bourgeois, who owns C&S Tree Removal. The family lives in Salem, less than a half-mile from where the accident happened.
    Jeffrey was a first-grader at Salem Elementary School, where he was honored in the school newsletter with a "Caught Being Good" award in December.
    Jeffrey and his family also enjoyed running in road races. In the Salem Kids 1 Mile Race in April 2011, he finished 45th with a time of 12:32, according to thelastmileracing.com.
    The town's fire chief, Eugene Maiorano, was the first emergency responder to the accident.
    "We're getting counseling for the family," Maiorano told WTNH-TV. "The family lives right across the street from me so I was the first on the scene. Saw that we had basically kept everybody away."

    Salem First Selectman Kevin Lynden called Tuesday "a very, very sad day for our Salem residents. This was a Salem family, very good family in town, a well-known family. Our hearts and prayers go out to them."
    The interim superintendent of Salem schools, Kaye Griffin, said a school would open during vacation week to provide counseling to students accompanied by parents. She said the school system is also developing plans to offer counseling for students and staff members when classes resume next week.

    It's not seeing your son pulled into it that fucks you up, it's seeing the red pile of goo forming at the end knowing that used to be your son just 30 seconds ago that fucks you up. Can't even imagine how he must've felt when seeing that. :smith:

    I thought the title meant that the kid killed his dad in a woodchipper while his dad was helping him do something.

    Really sad either way.

    Did you even read the article? The kid was "trying to help" and was pulled in while his dad turned his back, it was a no fault on the dad

    Reminds me of a old family friend whose chainsaw broke, sending the chain flying into his abdomen. Luckily, he survived. But, even though that was about 20 years ago, he still needed to have surgery occasionally. That fucked up their Christmas - seriously, that happened a week before Christmas!

    The dad should instruct the kid not to go near the wood chipper... I remember when I was a kid and we would have a wood chipper about and I was told to always stay away from it because it could pull me in and kill me.

    This is terrible, but I see nothing wrong with saying the dad was doing a bad parenting job. I know professionals who use these every day and wouldn't even let a grown man near them.

    You cant always help it. Kids tend to end up in places their not supposed to be very easily.

    It absolutely was the dad's fault. Little kids generally aren't very mindful of the dangers of these things and as a parent it's your responsibility to do what you can to keep them safe. It was stupid enough having the kid working anywhere near that machine, let alone actually working with it, and even more so to not even be paying attention while the kid was doing it.

    Back to the thread topic, did this guy never teach his son about health and safety? When I was his age, I was told that if dad's busy with power tools or whatever, you stay the hell away.
