I think we have all seen it. A parent or grandparent with a toddler riding on their lap as they mow the lawn with a riding mower. It is a recipe for disaster with tragic consequences as the Courant story below details. It looks like fun for the toddler , until they fall and you run over them. Please think twice and find another way to entertain them.

From the Courant:
 Clinton , CT- A 4-year-old boy suffered severe injuries to his right hand after he fell off a riding mower and his right hand went under the mower deck, police said.
The boy was riding on the mower with his father when he slipped off, police said.
The boy was taken by ambulance to Yale-New Haven Hospital.
Police are investigating the incident, which was reported at 8:10 p.m. at a home on Menunketesuck Drive.

I saw Charlie Ortiz with Pedro on his lap mowing behind the gate, should I warn the idiots? Perhaps he fell off the mower and hit his head, maybe that's why he can't think straight!
