    There should be a new section called "Dumb Operator News." Like dirtman said, how can you not see that those girls fell out in front of you!

    So this guy knowingly has two young girls in the bucket and operates in a way that A. he does'nt see whats happening in front of him, and B. he manages to knock them both out and run them over. It seems like were missing some details or this guy is one of the most dangerous operators i've heard of.

    ...when they were run over by a Bobcat utility vehicle...
    ...The third girl, who was not in the bucket, ...
    Gotta wonder if it was a skid steer, or a Toolcat? It would be easier to understand if it was a Toolcat. Still stupid though.

    Bit of fun turned into a very nasty accident!

    Be sure if you MUST drive children, people or even animals around in the bucket of equipment please drive backwards!

    If i was ever stupid enough to let someone ride in the bucket, my eyes would be glued to them the whole time i was moving.How could you even take your eyes off them for a split second while moving,and not just one,he ran both 2 of them,one after the other.No way is this an "unfortunate accident",it is complete neglicence by the supposed "operator". No way should this have happened.

    I agree. What is the safety manual and operators guide there for? It obviously clearly states that no passengers should ever be carried on these vehicles.
