MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Shelby County Sheriff's deputies say a child has been severely injured by a lawn mower.
A news release from the sheriff's office states Chester Ederds was mowing a lawn at a motel on Sunday and his 3-year-old and 4-year-old grandsons were riding on the mower with him.
Deputies said as Ederds went around a stump, the younger boy fell off and his right arm went underneath the mower. The blades severely injured his arm.
The boy was taken to Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in critical condition. The child's condition was later described as stable.
