 Portageville man dies in garden tractor accident

In another thread we were talking about mowing grass in wet conditions and steep grades. From the picture you can see the site of the accident was completely flat. I guess the operator was trying to pull something, even where it looks safe bad things can happen if you are doing soemthing that should not be done.

Dennis I found the same wording on this at 3 tv sites and one newspaper. We have three local tv stations and do no think ever heard all use the exact same wording inn a story.

It would be good if details were given to help others learn from his tragedy. Sure leaves a lot to wonder about. Still sad.
