TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — A 2-year-old central Florida boy is in critical condition after a lawn mower ran over his leg.
Bay News 9 reports the child’s mother was mowing grass at their home in Lake Placid when the accident happened on Wednesday morning.
The television station reports the child remains in critical condition following surgery at Tampa General Hospital on Wednesday.
There have been at least two other lawn mower accidents involving children in Florida this year. Toddler April Nugent lost both legs below the knees when her father ran over her legs in April. In July, a 4-year-old from Hardee County lost part of her right foot when her father backed over her with a riding lawn mower.
No further details about the latest case were immediately available.
