Fairfield Man Loses Fingers to Snow Blower

A Fairfield man lost several fingers in a snow-blower accident Wednesday morning. Fairfield Police received the call at about 11:23 a.m. from a home on Arbor Drive. The 47-year-old man was rushed to St. Vincent’s Hospital for treatment.

As a rule, never put your hands near snow-blower blades, even if the machine is turned off. The American Association for Surgery of the Hand recommends disconnecting the spark plugs before attempting to clear  blockages, and even then using a tool or another object instead of your hands.
