there was a 23yo father of 2 in KC a few years ago that rode a Grasshopper off a wall into brush creek. The grass was wet and the front end slid down hill. He couldnt stop it and it went into the creek pinning him under it when it flipped. It was his first week on the job.

I have the portable radio in my Tech room. It lasted long enough for him to call for help. Radio is water damaged and I will replace it.

Wow. Things like that happen so fast that they are over before you can react.
Glad he wasn't hurt too badly

I'm very careful when mowing near the edge of deep water now a days.There was an older lady just up the road not 1/2 mile from me that got trapped under her late husbands Cub Cadet 1811 when it flipped over in the creek.Unfortunately She did not make it.
Talked to my neighbor which is an EMT with the fire company and he said the steering wheel crushed her chest and pinned her under the water.
Stuff like that makes you a bit more cautious.

Couple of winters ago in the town just north of here a concrete truck skidded on a frosty roadway in a state park and the truck wound up being upside down in a lake with the driver still inside. Closest big truck wreckers were 35 miles away so it was an hour + before they pulled the truck out.
