Riding lawn mowers can cause injuries for children if they fall off while riding the equipment or when they are walking behind it, according to this article. "Oftentimes, it's either a child who was riding with a relative on a riding lawn mower who fell off, or a child who was walking or running behind someone on a riding lawn mower," said Dr. Junichi Tamai, from Cincinnati Children's Hospital in Ohio. Children should not be in the yard when someone is mowing and should not be allowed as passengers on riding mowers, Tamai advised.
