This morning my brother was mowing the lawn when for some reason the lawnmower caught fire. My dad quickly began to move it somewhere where it could burn itself out safely, when it exploded and injured his leg. A while ago when he was cutting logs with a chainsaw a piece of wood was torn out and hit him in the leg hard enough to damage the bone, well whatever it was that came off the mower hit him in the same spot, and now it's broken in two places. Apparently it'll be three weeks until it'll be healed.

Is the lawnmower electrical or runs on gasoline?

It's a petrol (gasoline) one.

Only 3 weeks?

That might have been 3 weeks until he leaves the hospital, it was one of my brothers who told me, so he's probably wrong.

My dads got plenty of leg injuries as well, pretty gruesome ones too.

When I wasn't born yet he was riding a motorcycle and something bad happened that forced his foot to touch the ground, a bit of his foot came off, he had to search for it and then go to a hospital...

And another one when I was like 8, I was there when he had an accident with a chainsaw, it went into his leg. I was scared like shit lol.
