That’s horrible to find that out.

We hope the injured man makes a swift recovery and doesn’t have any permanent injuries.

We’ll look to incorporate a design to prevent this ever happening to any of our Lawn Mowers, safety is a primary concern of ours.

It’s really bad feeling to read this post. Hope the injured man recovered already.
