36. "a 3 year old got his hair caught in the pto". So much sheer negligence for that to happen.
First, a child that young should not be anywhere near a running PTO. They aren't working - they are watching or riding along. Farm equipment isn't for children to play with or on. Second, PTO's are supposed to have shields in place so that clothing or hair will not get caught in them. This is just wrong and could be considered reckless endangerment of the child without anything happening and negligent homicide because something did. Unfortunately, some of the Amish and Old Order Mennonites are notorious for putting young children in dangerous situations on farms. Some of the worst cases involve a child falling off and getting run over by tillage or mowing equipment.
