A man ran over his 2-year-old daughter as he pulled a riding lawn mower into his garage in Palm Harbor.
The Tampa Bay Times reports the blades severed the little girl's hand and both legs beneath the knees. She was taken to Tampa General Hospital Wednesday evening. Her condition was not available early Thursday.
Authorities say the man was putting the lawn mower in the garage when he looked up and saw his wife motioning for him to stop. He backed up, unaware that his daughter had fallen behind him.
Firefighters say they treated both parents for hysteria.
