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. ....
