(WICHITA, Kan.) — Crews working for "Michael's Complete Lawn Care have a big job - keeping things tidy along Wichita's canal route.
That's means cutting grass and weeds along one of the busiest stretches of road in the city.
"It's highly dangerous. We definitely take every precaution that we can," explains Senior Forman, Aaron Slone.
That includes wearing vests, but most importantly, paying attention to what's happening around them. But that doesn't always guarantee their safety.
"A guy was wearing a backpack blower, and we were trying to stay out of the street as much as possible, and he was clipped by a mirror. It spun him around and threw him into the grass."
That man, fortunately, wasn't seriously hurt. But that wasn't the case for a 32 year-old landscaping who was killed Friday morning while weed-whacking near Hawker Beechcraft.
