Last week I posted about a lady who died after running over herself with a w/b. Today was a little more personal. I was mowing a large (3 acre) yard and a kid across the street was weedeating a ditch. I see him sitting down for a smoke break and wave. About 15 minutes later I see him sitting down holding his foot. I figured he took a rock to the foot, and it hurt a bit. I make the next loop (big loops on this yard ) and he is still there, so I go over to see what the problem was. He was shaking horribly, and his shoe was covered in blood. Seems he hit a big chunk of beer bottle glass and flung it into his foot. Went right through his running shoes. I called the ambulance and got him to give me his mom's number so she could come too. The EMT's get there and proceed to cut off his shoe. He severed his big toe, and the next 2 as well. About 95% cut through, right through the bone and everything. Just a bit of skin holding them on. So be careful, watch what you are doing, and wear some damn boots! I prefer steel toe myself.
