Sad news out of Florida as a 19-month-old baby boy died after being hit by a lawn mower operated by the boy’s own grandmother.
Police say the child’s grandmother, Cynthia, had been pulling the boy in a cart behind the lawnmower and he somehow fell and got caught under it. He was struck by the mower’s blade about the head and body.
The accident took place in Titusville, Florida, on Friday afternoon, a neighbor of the child told reporters:
“They’re suffering. The whole family’s suffering,” said neighbor Dave Smith.
“Cynthia is a good, Christian woman, and I know whatever happened, I just know she feels as bad as anyone could ever feel. She’ll never get over this.”
Investigators said they’ll wait for the boy’s autopsy from the Medical Examiner’s Office and talk with the State Attorney’s Office to determine if the grandmother will be charged.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family as they cope with this horrible tragedy.
