Philip Dickey is urging farmers and contractors to "keep the back window shut when mowing.”
In a post on Facebook, he said: "I'm a lucky boy to be able to write this."
"I've always kept the back window shut when mowing and some boys don't and this just proves how easy it can save your life or from a head injury."
He hit a stone in the centre of a field and a blade flew through the window and smashed it. "Dirt and the blade landed on the toolbox lid beside me," he explained.
"If the window was open, who knows where it would have gone, my head, back anywhere."
"Let that be a lesson to all farmers/contractors," he concluded.
