Girl Loses Feet In Lawn Mower Accident
A girl, age 5, was flown to a Baltimore hospital after a lawn mower accident Monday.
A 5-year-old girl was flown to a Baltimore hospital Monday after a lawn mower accident in Forest Hill.
Around 6:22 p.m. a man was mowing in the 800 block of Kensington Farm Court in Forest Hill, according to Rich Gardiner, spokesman for Harford County Volunteer Fire and EMS Association.
The man put the riding mower in reverse and accidentally backed over his 5-year-old daughter, amputating both of her feet, according to Gardiner.
A medevac helicopter responded to the area to transport the girl for treatment, according to Gardiner.
This is the second accident of its kind to impact the county within less than two months. On April 1, a 9-year-old Jarrettsville girl was hospitalized after someone accidentally ran over her foot with a lawn mower.
