HAYESVILLE, Ohio (AP) - A 2-year-old boy has been hospitalized with serious injuries after authorities say his leg was caught in the blades of a garden tractor’s lawn mower in northern Ohio.

The Mansfield News Journal reports (https://ohne.ws/29XiZr6 ) the rural Hayesville area boy had been playing outside and somehow got his left foot, ankle and leg caught in the tractor while his 15-year-old sister was mowing the lawn Wednesday afternoon.

Authorities say the boy had severe lacerations but was awake and alert. He has been flown to a Cleveland hospital.

Chief Deputy Carl Richert of the Ashland County Sheriff’s Office says it’s a “terrible accident” and investigators aren’t sure what caused it.
