2-year-old critically injured by lawnmower in South Lyon
SOUTH LYON, Mich. (WJBK) - A 2-year-old boy is hit by a lawnmower just before 3 p.m. South Lyon Monday.
Police said the little boy ran in front of a lawn tractor as his grandfather was mowing in the area of Ten Mile Road and Pheasant Lake Road.
The tractor could not be stopped before striking the child with the mowing deck, police say.
The boy suffered "sustained significant injury to his lower extremities." He was transported to the University of Michigan Mott Children's Hospital.
Jason Pless, Green Oak Township Police chief, said that the boy was outside playing at the time and suffered severe injuries.
"I believe the kid came from a blindside and the tractor made a turn and didn't see him," Pless said.
