Be careful during planting season

Dear Editor,

Saturday, my brother was seriously injured in a farming accident. He was caught in the pto shaft of an auger on my tractor.

I had to cut him loose and give CPR to save him. So as spring planting season comes up, I want to warn everyone of the dangers of tractors and their implements. Please take all safety precautions and make sure all safety devices are in place and working.

This was a horrible accident that could have been prevented. If this letter saves one person it would be a blessing. Thanks to everyone that has prayed for him.
