MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Authorities say a 1-year-old boy in Shelby County was killed when his father backed over him with a tractor.
The Commercial Appeal reports that the accident occurred around 6 p.m. Wednesday.
According to authorities, the boy's father was working in their backyard with a Bobcat tractor. The father apparently lost track of the child's whereabouts and backed over him.
Authorities said the boy's mother was supposed to be watching the boy, but stepped away.
