Alabama worker killed in lawn mower accident

A lawn mower is something that most people who own a home use on a regular basis. It is, therefore, easy to forget that a lawn mower can be a very dangerous tool, given certain circumstances.

There are some workers to whom lawn mowers truly are an everyday tool, putting them in danger of sustaining serious workplace injuries while simply trying to cut grass. One Alabama worker sadly lost his life this month while trying to complete a job in Jefferson County.

According to reports, the victim was employed by a company, the name of which we will keep private here. He was on-the-job and using a riding mower on Aug. 3 when the machine fell down a hill. The worker was crushed by the mower and sadly didn't survive the workplace accident.
