Richville Man Dies In Wood Splitter Accident


A St. Lawrence County man, who died in an accident at his home, was crushed to death.

That's according to an autopsy on 53 year old Leslie Davis of 908 River Road in Richville.

According to State Police Investigator Patrick Loveland, Davis was making repairs to a homemade hydraulic wood splitter Monday morning.

Loveland said Davis was apparently trying to upright the heavy equipment when it fell on him.

According to Loveland, Davis had been dead for about two hours before a family member discovered him shortly before noon.

Davis was pronounced dead at the scene.
