Girl, 2, run over by lawn mower

PALM HARBOR, Fla. – Authorities say a Florida man accidentally ran over his 2-year-old daughter with a riding lawn mower in the Tampa Bay area.

Officials said 47-year-old Jeremiah Nugent was cutting grass Wednesday at his Palm Harbor home and about to park the mower in his garage when he thought his wife was alerting him that he was about to drive over something. The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said the man responded by putting the mower in reverse, running over his daughter.

The man immediately turned off the mower, and the woman called 911.

Authorities said the child’s feet were severed at the ankles. Her left hand was injured but intact. She was taken to Tampa General Hospital, and her condition was unavailable Thursday.

Firefighters said they treated both parents for hysteria.
