A child is in the hospital after a tragic mowing accident Tuesday afternoon.

It happened in Adams.

Deputies say a 5-year-old boy tried to scare his mom as she was backing up with the riding lawn mower.

She didn’t see him and ran over him. He had serious injuries to one of his legs.

Star Care flew him to Lincoln with life-threatening injuries.
