Another Tot Hurt by Riding Lawn Mower

A Highlands County 2-year-old is in critical condition after his mother accidentally backed over his leg with a riding lawn mower, the Tampa Bay Times reports. It’s not known what type of mower she was operating -- newer models have a safety feature that stops the spinning blades when the machine is in reverse. In recent months, two other young children have been seriously injured in riding lawn mower accidents in Tampa Bay.
