Associated Press Release

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Two Florida children were accidentally run over by lawn mowers and severely injured, and both are undergoing treatment at gulf coast hospitals.

The Tampa Tribune reports that 4-year-old Makaya Lee's right leg and foot were severely injured Friday when she was run over by a mower operated by her father outside their home in Hardee County.

On Sunday, a 3-year-old boy named Jonathan Fox sustained a severe foot injury when he fell off his bike and his mother's boyfriend accidentally backed a mower over him.

The incidents were similar to the one that severed the feet of Palm Harbor 2-year-old Ireland Nugent, who recently received prostheses.
