A 15-year-old boy had been using the family snowblower to clear the snow from the driveway. The snow was wet and heavy and kept clogging the machine. When the machine was stopped the boy reached in to unclog some of the snow which had collected there. Two of his fingers were cut off by the machine’s blades. A simple machine guard, among other safety devices, could have prevented this occurrence.
