You must stop. If you can


You must stop. If you can hear the lawnmower in your headphones, then any remedial action in post can't be guaranteed to work. The only thing to consider is how the restart works.

Apologise to the subject, and just go back a bit and give them a nudge to get them back in. It's not your fault. I once had a US client who had me book a stately home to shoot in. Nobody mentioned the guy in the farm next door had a Spitfire! Shot after shot ruined – took twice as long as it should!
