Boy, 4, loses foot, part of leg in mower accident
Mower driver became so choked with grief that his fiancee called for 2 ambulances
The Columbus Dispatch
HARRISON TOWNSHIP, Ohio — The little boy loved taking rides on tractors and mowers. Maybe that's why he was standing there, in the worst possible place, where his neighbor couldn't see him. Maybe Joe Joe just wanted a ride.
What happened that horrifying moment altered both of their lives. Four-year-old Joseph Loughry will never be the same. Neighbor Robin Coccia, the mower driver, became so choked with grief that his fiancee would call for two ambulances -- one for the boy and one for the man.
