COLUMBUS, OH - 5/6/2009

:30 sec.
'Tis the season for the tragedy of lawn mower injuries. 
Each year children are needlessly injured by walk-behind and riding gas-powered lawnmowers.
These injuries often require multiple surgeries and extensive rehabilitation and the long-term effects are life-changing.
Lawnmowers are not toys. 
Keep children and pets INSIDE while operating a mower! 
Protect children from these devastating injuries and yourself from the emotionally devastating guilt.

Children and lawn mowers don't mix! 
No one ever thinks a devastating lawn mower injury will happen to a child they
love, but it does......every year. 
Protect the children you love by keeping them inside while mowing the lawn.
