    Mower Accident Claims 6 Year Old

    Community Prays for 6-Year-Old Injured in Lawn Mower Accident | News, Sports, Jobs - The Intelligencer

    SHADYSIDE — More than 300 residents of Shadyside knelt in prayer Sunday as they gathered at Jefferson Avenue Elementary School to pray for 6-year-old Noah Brown, who was severely injured in a lawn mower accident on Saturday.

    The first-grade student was struck in the head by an object that flew out from under a lawn mower. He was flown to Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh where he is undergoing treatment. Noah is the son of Rob and Janell Slack Brown. Janell Brown said she and others are praying for a miracle. She also asked for prayers for the man who was cutting the grass.


    UPDATE:
    Shadyside boy dies after tragic accident | WTOV


    SHADYSIDE, Ohio — One day after a community gathered for a prayer vigil, a local boy has died.

    Noah Brown was injured in a tragic, freak accident on Saturday and taken to a Pittsburgh hospital. On Sunday, more than 300 people participated in a prayer vigil at Jefferson Avenue Elementary School to show support for the first-grade student.

    On Monday, however, Brown passed away.


    So sad. Thought I'd pass this along. I used to drive past this community every day on my way to work.

    Hoping this will make everyone aware of the dangers when mowing.

    I've had to yell at my kid for even approaching me when I'm mowing. I've been hit in the face by rocks that shoot out of the deck and ricochet off the driveway or other rocks. I wear safety glasses, ear plugs, hat, and dust mask when I mow. It seems like overkill, but out of the half dozen carpenters I know who don't wear safety glasses, one of those has had multiple cornea transplants from a staple through his eye. Most of them have had metal in their eyes from nailing or nail guns. I don't like the odds.

    When my son was little we had to take him to Children's hospital in Columbus.

    In the operating waiting room was a young boy that had run in front of his dad's riding mower. His dad couldn't stop and ran over him with the mower running. He was going to require a lot of skin grafts and was bandaged from head to toe.

    I thought I was the only one this anal. Especially the part about the dust mask. Always get the kind with the little exhaust valve in the front.

    This is one thing that makes me glad I'm not working my old property management job at my trailer hood. It's like the "parents" (and I use that term very loosely) send the kids outside to play as soon as they seen my tractor coming. I had them jump right in front of the tractor or try to sneek up behind me on more than one occasion. Not to mention the chance of getting hit by a flying object. Them kids let trash & toys all over the vacant lots. A flying Matchbox car to the temple would put one down for sure. At the very least I got to pull the blades again.

    This was a huge issue when I was mowing commercially. I ended up just giving up my accounts in town mostly because of this.

    It is just amazing - like you say - that people (parents) are that unaware of the danger. So many times I would get unloaded at a property and have to go ask the mother to get her kid inside while I was mowing. Usually got a dirty look. Then of course the yard full of toys and who knows what hidden stuff.....

    Terrible accident. I knew (I will get to why I knew him) a guy that had his three year old on his lap while mowing his lawn and the child fell off the tractor and his arm went under the mower deck and the little boy lost his arm, very tragic and when his dad was telling us about it we all felt sick. Now as to why I knew him, a month after the accident the father ran into a tree not 1/8 of a mile from his home and died in the accident.. All because he was late to get to the lumber yard to work.. How tragic that all was.. His son now works as a carpenter with a prosthetic arm.. He does quite well with it and if he isn't the spitting image of his dad, he comes in for permits from me.. I suppose there are a lot of tragic events involving lawn mowers/tractors but when they are so close to home it drives the safety issue straight to ones own thoughts.. Also brings back old bad memories.. Memories that unfortunately teach us about safety and what not to do.... Jeff
