I just got off the phone with the wife of a 79 year old man who was killed Saturday afternoon when he got off his tractor, then it ran over him, partially amputating both his legs! I had to write that up for the newspaper after hearing it while it was all going on on Saturday afternoon. This accident comes right on the heels of our biggest town's fire chief's accident where his leg was broken because he was trying to hook up his bushhog and was standing where he shouldn't be standing AND another nearby fire chief who got a severe head injury from a similar piece of farm equipment... Please please please everybody be careful when operating your farm tractors! These accidents are devastating to the family members who find you out there in pieces....and the rescue squads who have to come and pick up those pieces.... Let's all remember that no matter how long we've been driving our tractors and how much we think we know, it only takes one second of inattention and tragedy can strike! Also, remember lawn mower safety as well. DO NOT EVER mow the law with your child or grandchild riding with you....I wrote about a beautiful little four or five year old girl once who lost her legs to her families' riding lawn mower.... My own husband lost part of his foot to a push mower....Everybody please BE CAREFUL, BE ATTENTIVE and STAY SAFE!!!!
