    PALM HARBOR — The little girl with light brown hair looked up at the deputy and asked him where her legs had gone.

    Moments before on Wednesday evening, her father was pulling his red Wizard riding lawn mower into the garage when he looked up and saw his wife, screaming and motioning for him to stop.

    He backed up, unaware that his daughter, who is 2, had fallen behind him. The mower ran over her. The blades severed her hand and both of her legs beneath the knees.

    How horrific. This child's life, and the family's lives, have been forever altered in an instant. She is lucky to still be alive. Hard to imagine the guilt the dad will carry to his grave.
