    • How is this disrespectful?!? They didn’t even use the word dead in the sentence they simple said pronounced….thats how respectful they were! Take your anger out on those responsible for a 5 y.o. on a mower not those reporting about it!!!

  1. A 5 year old shouldn’t even be near a lawnmower and should be taught to stay away from them because they are dangerous!!
