(COLUMBUS) - A 5-year-old boy is in good condition today at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis after he suffered a foot injury from the blade of lawn mower.

Jace Whitis, 5, was flown to Riley on Tuesday after he fell off a riding lawn tractor his father was driving at their home on 11th Street in Elizabethtown.

One of the boy's feet was partially severed in the accident, authorities said.

Whitis was riding with his father, Jeff Whitis, at about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday when he fell off the tractor trying to retrieve a wrench he had dropped. The blade on the mower was engaged and struck part of the boy's foot.
