Horror after toddler's legs are severed by father riding lawn mower
A two-year-old girl in Florida has lost both her legs and part of her hand after she ran in front of a lawnmower her father was driving.
Authorities in Palm Harbor said the father of the girl, who has not been named, did not see her in the driveway of their home.
According to local media reports the little girl's mother attempted to alert him to her presence but he could not see or hear her.
The little girl lost both of her legs below the knee and one of her hands was severely injured.
Police said her father swaddled her with a blanket and immediately called 911.
According to authorities the father reached the end of the driveway before he realised he had run his daughter over.
The toddler was airlifted to Tampa General Hospital where she is now being treated.
