Last week we reported that a 5-year-old Wartrace boy lost a hand on Sept. 7 night after falling off a riding lawn mower he was on with his mother.
Now, the town of Watrace is stepping up to help Zayden Bomar. The town is collecting gift cards and other donations that can be dropped off at the Town Hall, located at 29 Main Street East in Wartrace.
Zayden has also been named the Chief Marshal of the Highway 41 Toy Convoy taking place on Sunday, November 6th.
The Wartrace police chief reminds everyone to not let a small child on a lawn mower with you,” he said. “It doesn’t matter how old they are. There needs to be one person operating a machine and, in this case, this is an accident that turned tragic.”
