A man suffered a severe hand injury in a mishap involving a snow blower in south Kansas City this morning.

The incident occurred about 11:30 a.m. in the 12800 block of McGee Street.

Emergency radio traffic indicated that the man lost fingers in the incident.

A Kansas City Fire Department spokesman said he could confirm that there was an accident involving a snow blower and the person was taken to a hospital. But he said federal law prevented him from discussing specifics on the extent of injuries.
