"Man, 82, dies in freak lawn accident"

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.

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.

I trust he was at least wearing eye and hearing protection.
