Hardee County girl accidentally run over by father on riding lawn mower

The father of a 4-year-old girl in Hardee County accidentally backed over his daughter with a riding lawn mower on Friday, according to Bay News 9.

Makaya Lee is recovering at Tampa General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Hospital officials say her right foot is severely injured.

The incident is reminiscent of Ireland Nugent, the Palm Harbor toddler who lost her lower legs and feet in April when her father accidentally backed over her on his riding lawn mower.
