OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - An Omaha woman has been arrested after police say she ran over the foot of a toddler in her care with a lawnmower.

Omaha television station KETV reports (https://bit.ly/1JZwHAN ) that 32-year-old Karla Drazic was arrested Thursday on a charge of felony child neglect causing serious injury.

Police say the incident happened Aug. 13 at Drazic’s in-home day care in west Omaha.

Drazic told investigators she was mowing the lawn when she accidentally ran over a 23-month-old boy’s foot. Police say one of the boy’s toes had to be amputated.

The child’s parents say he is recovering well. They don’t think Drazic intentionally harmed the child, but support the charges because of what they call her poor judgment.



A publicly-listed phone number for Drazic could not be found Saturday.
