Lawn Mower Accident

Doctors are trying to save the foot of a 4-year old after it's nearly severed in a lawn mower accident.

Neighbors say the girl was playing in the yard, in Boyle County, between Harrodsburg and Perryville, when the mower ran over her foot.

Chris Attleberry says she heard the screams from inside her house and ran out.

The girl was taken by helicopter to UK Hospital, but Attleberry says she knows the girl lost a toe and her foot was almost all the way severed.

She says the little girl was over at her house, just yesterday, celebrating the birthday of her 6-year old brother.

Attleberry says she and the child's family were very impressed with how quick rescue crews arrived.
