SAN ANTONIO - A child is recovering in the hospital after being run over by a tractor Thursday evening.

Emergency crews were called to 19900 South Jett Road at about 5:30 p.m. for reports of an injured child.

Deputies said the 5-year-old child was following the father cutting the grass in the tractor, when he tried to reverse and inadvertently ran over the child's right leg, causing severe injuries.

Parents told deputies they did not see the child until the tractor ran over the leg.

The child was airlifted to University Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
