Teen Dies After Being Pulled Into Wood Chipper

POQUOSON, Virginia – It’s been awhile, but we have another horrific story of someone being killed inside a wood chipper. Sometime after 3 p.m. Sunday, 14-year-old Frank Anthony Gornick was working for Old Dominion Tree and Lawn Care Service doing some storm cleanup. He was using a shovel to load limbs into a wood chipper when the shovel got caught in the blades and Gornick was pulled inside the wood chipper. Another co-worker ran over to turn off the machine, but it was too late. The report says he died instantly so I guess that is some type of consolation for his friends and family. This ranks up there in my list of most horrific way to die. Even if this kid was an absolute asshole, which by all accounts he was not, he would not have deserved a death like this. A Facebook Page has been set up in his memory and Poquoson high school and middle school are making grief counselors available to all students.
