Summer brings one of the best times of the entire year. Plants and flowers are in full bloom and everything seems to be thriving in the nice weather. Many people stay busy tending to their lawns as well.

Sadly, a terrible accident has just been reported. According to news outlets, a toddler has been seriously injured after his grandfather ran over him with a lawn mower.

"The two-year-old boy was being chased by his grandmother Beverly Waltermire at their home in Indiana, in the US, when the youngster ran towards his grandfather William who was on the machine in the garden. As the granddad was reversing, the youngster, who hasn't been named, fell and went under the mower while it was mowing, police say. The little boy was taken to a nearby hospital and later flown to a different one with 'serious injuries,'" according to the Mirror.

The grandparents immediately sprang into action and did their best to tend to the young boy at the scene. They stayed on the phone with emergency personnel while waiting for the first responders to arrive.

"Deputies are still investigating and thus far calling it a terrible accident. Our thoughts are with the family during this difficult time. We would like to thank Rescue 20 and St. Vincent-Jennings Hospital Staff as well as Officers from the North Vernon Police Department for their efforts," said local officials.

The boy is battling for his health right now. Please join us in praying for him and his family through this terrible time.
