The biggest tragedy there is that his Grandson and other family members had to see this terrible accident :( .......... Few years back my employers brother 80 something years old one of those done all seen all kind people was steam cleaning his John Deere diesel backhoe with the front loader up while standing on the ground he reached in and started the tractor problem was that it was in gear and started up and climbed up the side of the building ripping the roof off at the evees and ole Nick was hangining from the steering wheel trying to stay away from the spinning rear tire lucky for him that some one else just happen to be walking by and saved his life by turning the tractor off, Nick was unhurt but his prided was hammered cause he and everyone else knows the #1 rule Never Start the Tractor from the Ground...
