MUNCIE — Jack Williamson has always been a practical joker, so his family figures he was trying to sneak up on his grandpa the day of his accident. His mom, Amanda Erk, remembers looking at Jack from the second-story window of her parents' house while putting his little sister, Maggie, down for a nap. Her father was moving the John Deere mower he uses to keep up the family's seven acres. He was about to put the machine away, but noticed a spot that needed a quick touch up. Amanda watched as her father looked around to find Jack playing on the swing set. The rule was Jack had to be inside when grandpa mowed. Amanda thought about yelling to Jack to come inside, but realized she would be calling him toward the lawn mower. Jack remembers going to see his grandpa, and slipping on a rock. Then he remembers his grandpa putting him on the grass, and being inside an ambulance. Jack had fallen and his grandfather, who didn't realize Jack snuck across the yard, backed up. Amanda remembers more. She remembers her mother grabbing a cold towel and robe strap while she called 9-1-1. She remembers searching for pieces, picking up toes from the grass while her mother made a tourniquet to try and stop the bleeding. Lawn mowers are now required to have certain safety features because so many accidents had happened.
