A landscaper was critically injured today when his torso was caught in a stump grinder, police said.
Landscapers from a Mount Laurel company were loading the machine onto a trailer when it appeared to accidentally turn shortly after 11 a.m., said Evesham Police Lt. Walt Miller. The crew had been finishing up grinding tree stumps at the township's Board of Education building.
The victim was airlifted to Cooper University Hospital in Camden, Miller said. The victim is about 35-year-old and from Washington state, though he may have a local address, police said.
