We haven't had so many equipment related deaths lately, so tossing this little nugget. What a gruesome discovery!
The following is a sampling of police dispatcher calls as they were documented in real time.
30 Aug 2019
A woman near the intersection of South and D streets called police on Tuesday at 3:09 p.m. after she found her neighbor on the ground after an apparent chainsaw accident. She told police that it looked like he had died from a head wound.
Fire and ambulance crews arrived and the San Joaquin County coroner was called to the scene. Police closed the street to pedestrians and car traffic for about 3½ hours as detectives and crime scene technicians examined the area, eventually confirming that the man’s death was accidental. It was about an hour before police found an adult relative who they could notify.
