Yeah. Many years ago I was mowing the lawn wearing tennis shoes (why the lawn was wearing tennis shoes I'll never know). I took a few steps backwards, slipped and fell. My right foot went under the mower and the deed was done.
I'll never forget the ambulance attendant. He had great bedside manner. He took a look at my foot and said, "Holy crap, Mister! You did one heck of a number on that foot!"
I'm one of the statistics that lead to the introduction of those flap type safety guards that are now on the back of mower decks.
