You can help an accident victim who lost both legs


BUFFALO, NY - There's a family in the Southtowns who needs your help after a horrific farm accident.

Dillon Williams, 20, of Eden, was helping a friend clear a field of weeds last Thursday, near the home of his girlfriend, where they planned to stage her graduation party.

They were using a tractor and brush hog.

"I went to jump up on the tractor and slipped," recalled Williams. "I fell beneath the tire."

His friend who was driving the tractor immediately tried to shut down the power take-off which was operating the mower behind the tractor, but it was not in time to keep Williams' lower body from encountering the blades.

"My legs went feet first right into the brush hog," Williams told WGRZ-TV.

After the machinery stopped his friend and his girlfriend's father lifted the mower to a ghastly sight.
