JENNINGS COUNTY — A two-year-old was seriously injured after being run over by a lawn mower Saturday afternoon in Jennings County.

The child was chasing his grandfather who was on a lawnmower around 1 p.m., according to a Facebook post from the sheriff's office. When the grandfather was backing up and mowing, the child fell and went under the lawn mower.

His grandparents then took their grandson to the sheriff's office to meet with Rescue 20 for help before being taken to St. Vincent Jennings Hospital by Rescue 20, according to the post. He was later flown to IU Health Riley Hospital for Children.
