Congressman Loses Toe in Mower Accident

May 28, 1987|Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Rep. Gerry Sikorski (D-Minn.) lost the little toe on his right foot in a mower accident on his Minnesota farm this week.

Sikorski said he was using an old rotary mower Tuesday to clear brush on his farm outside Stillwater when he kicked his foot under the open back end of the machine. The rotary blade cut through his right tennis shoe and severed the toe, he said.

Sikorski was spotted using a wheelchair at times Wednesday to make his way through the Capitol and was on crutches the rest of the day.
