A 46-year old Council Bluffs female suffered what were thought to be non-life threatening facial injuries Thursday morning, after becoming entangled in a wood chipper. Pottawattamie County Sheriff Jeff Danker told KJAN News Angela Davis, an employee of Kathy’s Tree and Stump Removal Service in Council Bluffs, was trying to untangle a rope from a branch that got caught in the chipper, when she was pulled into the machine. The incident happened at around 10-a.m., at 21686 Greenview Road, in rural Council Bluffs. Danker says Davis suffered lacerations to her face and leg. She was transported to Creighton University Medical Center in Omaha, for treatment of her injuries.
