It happened around 5:15 p.m. on Ranch Road. Deputies said the boy was helping his uncle mow the lawn when he slipped and fell in front of the mower.
He was too close for his uncle to stop and the lawn mower ran over the boy, nearly severing his leg.
An orthopedic surgeon is trying to repair the injury at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.
