These kinds of posts always kind of gall me.
We kill approximately 50,000 people per year on our nation's highways yet you rarely hear of one in the news.
Yet if a small plane crashes or a farmer is killed on a tractor it's all over the news.
All it serves is to make people scared of tractors and give the nanny staters more grist to demand we put Rops on every tractor on the planet.
I say the fellow died Quickly, doing something he enjoyed.
Nanny staters want us all to die safely, slowly and grimly in a hospital bed.
Guess which way I'd choose.

It has the opposite affect on me. It just serves to remind me to be safe since I have an FEL on my 8N.
As I've said here before, you're only as safe as you are aware of your own safety.
I don't like to see these things reported either but they only strengthen my safety regimen. Anybody that doesn't stop and think when they here of something like this doesn't belong on a tractor anyway.
