Edward Turgeon, 82, died Monday morning after suffering severe leg injuries while clearing heavy brush from his property in the 5600 block of South Flores.(from KSAT-12)
Turgeon was using an old-style bush whacker with a circular saw when he somehow fell and the blade cut both of his legs.
"The blade is not even sealed. It's wide open," said Moses Garza, a longtime friend and tenant, who rented out space on Turgeon's property. "It's a dangerous piece of equipment there."
The old man probably had that horrific piece of equipment since the days when he was a young man, so many years ago. Those were more dangerous times, in many ways.
