Tragedy strikes again.  This is so unfortunate... 

I'll say it again, "Power equipment safety doesn't just happen.  You can make it happen!"

Children run over by ride-on lawnmower

December 17th, 2009

THREE children have suffered chest and facial injuries after being run over by a ride-on mower/tractor at a property on Crane Street at Nerang.

The father of the three girls was driving the mower at the time of the accident. It is believed he suffered a seizure, although it is not known if that was the cause or the effect of the accident. He also sustained a back injury.

The mower rolled down a paddock, throwing the father off before rolling over the children.

One child, aged 8, suffered chest, face and arm injuries. A six-year-old sustained severe facial lacerations and a 4-year-old experienced chest pains.

All four family members have been transported to Gold Coast Hospital in a serious condition by ambulance. At 2pm they were reported to be in a stable condition.

Paramedics described them as 'a very lucky family'.

More details as they become available.
