child mowed
« on: January 19, 2024, 14:43:18 pm »
A little boy, Clarence Deeprose, was playing in a. field at Ninfield, near Bexhill, on Monday. It is supposed that he felt tired, lay down, and went to sleep. A grass-cutting machine drawn by two horses came along, and before the driver knew or saw the child he was caught in the machine, and the toes of one foot and the heel of the other were cut off. The boy. who is only four years old was  taken to the hospital, where one foot was amputated.
