COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — A woman who lost part of her leg in a motorcycle accident when she was 21-years-old is now helping a little Council Bluffs girl learn to walk again after she lost her leg in a lawn mower accident.
In May, Taryn Graalfs, now 3, fell under a riding lawnmower.
“The person who was watching her went to go help her, and then she fell further into a ditch, and landed underneath the mower,” her mother, Tonya Streck, told WOWT-TV after the accident.
“I think right now, she is three and it is exhausting to wear it. It is like working out literally for an hour,” her mom said.
She reminds everyone that anytime there is a running lawnmower, kids should be inside and supervised.
“I mean, mowing a lawn you can kick a rock, let along lose a limb,” said Streck.
