Gotta say a prayer for the family that this happened to. In Salem CT....a 6 year old boy was killed in a horrible accident involving a wood chipper. Siblings were also out helping. It's a town a few minutes north of where my office is, my business colleague lives there.
Immediate reaction is "What kind of father allows his kid to be around something like that?" It's a rural farming town, kids learn outdoor work and equipment at an early age. There's no reason to finger point and blame the father. The reality is...it was a horrible scene for the father and the kids siblings to witness. That image and sounds will be burned into their memory for the rest of their lives..and they'll never be the same. Father and mother will probably end up in severe depression and divorce in a year or two. Heard that the the first emergency crews to arrive at the scene were even throwing up and leaving the scene and had to go get psyche treatment right away...it was so bad.
A sad sad story.
