  1. Tried to post these pics yesterday but kept getting bumped off the net. I guess I was consuming too much bandwidth on a busy day.

    this guy is a friend of my son. While mowing a ditch, he slipped and pulled the push mower over his foot.
    Pretty typical accident. The doctor told him it would regrow. He's in his early twenties.

    What kind out footwear did he have on?

    I have worn work boots ever since I slipped once w/ a push mower wearing sneakers. (Never came close to the mower, but scared enough to change.)

    A very lucky person indeed! That is not good but could have been much worse.

    Ouch!! What kind of shoes was he wearing? I hope he is on some type of strong antibiotic to keep infection at bay.

    It might partially grow back but it will not be very pretty I bet.

    We used to wear these pull over metal tips while mowing in the military. We looked really ridiculous and made a clanging sound when we walked. I never lost a foot though. :)

    This is such a typical practice among many homeowners and yet so dangerous. I've posted on this before - about "pulling" the mower up hill behind you. You ALWAYS keep the mower higher than you for control. This guy is real lucky.
