LOMIRA (WKOW) -- A three-year-old child was injured Tuesday afternoon after being run over by a riding lawnmower.

Dodge County Central Communications received a 911 call reporting the incident just after 2:00 p.m.  The initial report is the young child ran towards the lawnmower.  The operator of the mower did not know the child was there and began backing up, striking the child.

The child was flown to an area hospital via Flight for Life with severe injuries.  Sheriff Patricia Ninmann says, "The accident is not suspicious in nature, and our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with the young child and family."

At this time, the condition of the child is unknown.
