    That article hit me a little more than most I'm sure. Just a week earlier, we heard that a business acquaintance (the buyer from one of our best customers at work) was killed in a tractor accident at his home. He lived in Phelps, NY. I only knew him through work, and we first met about 5 years ago. I didn't even know he was a tractor person.

    Details are sketchy, and there was no news article about it, but what we heard was that he was discovered in the woods on his property, pinned under his tractor. Apparently, he was moving a log with his TLB, somehow got knocked out of his seat, tractor kept moving and flipped onto him. No-one else was there, so no one really knows what happened. The only tractor details I got was that it was an older tractor with no ROPS or seat switch.

    Truly sad when people get hurt or killed and really makes me think twice (or more) whether what I am doing is safe or not. It doesn't have to be tractor related, it could be on top of a ladder, leaning out a window, running a lawnmower, the list goes on and on.

    Please be safe out there, whatever you may be doing.

    Yes just tragic, prayers sent to all involved. The buffalo news (TV) is what we watch, this was about 70 miles from us, vicinity of where Mrs. CP grew up. It's a pretty rural area and the news said this (pulling trees) was something the man did often with his tractor. This time just went horribly wrong.

    This is a good reminder. Horrible, pointless deaths, but maybe the posting of this will save a life!

    I was just taking my nephews and my own daughters for rides yesterday. I have strict rules about rides. FLAT ground only. NEVER in the woods and NEVER while doing ANY type of actual work! Common sense rules I'd think. So much can go wrong WAY too fast to react. Doesn't matter about ROP in this case, as the grandson would have had a small chance of not being in harms way as a rider who isn't belted into place. Even with ROP, there is no promise that an accident won't kill you. If it looks like a stupid idea or you are rigging together something questionable, just stop before you start! The story sort of makes me mad actually that an adult thought this was a good idea to start with!

    Horse power, hydraulics, heavy machinery, and good intentions to share in the FUN can kill! I think it should just be a matter of fact, DO NOT TAKE KIDS ON A TRACTOR in questionable situations! Better yet, only give rides on flat surfaces with the only purpose being a SAFE ride where you can pay 100% attention to the child and that task alone. That's my 2 cents on this....
