(Longview, WA)  --  A Longview man is happy to be alive after being seriously injured while inside a woodchipper.  Frank Arce, who works for Swanson Bark & Wood Products in Longview, was inside the machine to clean it when the motor suddenly started.  While in the running woodchipper for about ten seconds, Arce suffered multiple broken ribs, a number of cuts, and a collapsed lung.  Arce, who is facing several surgeries, tells KATU-TV that the worst part wasn't going through the machine, but not knowing what was going to happen.
