AMERICAN FORK, Utah (AP) - A 4-year-old Utah girl has lost her foot and part of her leg after she fell off a riding lawnmower and got caught underneath it.

American Fork Police Lt. Sam Liddiard says the accident occurred while the girl was riding the lawnmower with her grandmother on Monday afternoon on a neighbor’s lawn.

Liddiard told KSL-TV (https://bit.ly/2at4Keo ) that the girl’s leg may have to be amputated below the knee.

She was taken to a hospital in American Fork. Liddiard says she will likely be moved to Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City once doctors have stabilized her.
