 Why Oh Why????

This article was in a local paper today....
ARGILLITE A 5-year-old boy was killed Monday in a tractor accident in
Greenup County.
According to the Greenup County Sheriff's Department, the boy was
riding on a tractor being operated by his grandfather.
He was clearing land at the time, using a device known as a Bush Hog, a rotary
brush cutter and field mower, the sheriff's department said.
The youngster fell off the back of the tractor and was run over by the Bush Hog,
which was being pulled by the tractor, according to the sheriff's department.
It was not immediately known what caused the child to fall from the tractor.
The boy was pronounced dead at the scene by Greenup County Coroner.
This should never have happened!!!

Sad. Very sad.

It is like people playing with guns. Familiarity breeds contempt. I can't imagine the anguish that grandfather is going through.
