A Brownsville toddler was seriously injured after being run over by a riding lawnmower. Dodge County Sheriff Pat Ninmann says the dispatch center received a call that a three year old boy was struck by a lawnmower at a town of Lomira residence off Highway 175. Initial reports indicate that the young child ran toward the lawnmower, as the child’s grandfather was making a backing maneuver, striking the child. The child suffered severe injuries including a severed hand and was transported to the hospital via Flight for Life helicopter. Sheriff Ninmann states “The accident is not suspicious in nature, and our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with the young child and family”.
Assisting the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office was Lomira Police Department, Brownsville Fire and First
Responders, Mayville EMS, Theresa Fire, and Flight For Life.
