Last updated on Sunday, November 25, 2012

(BLOOMINGTON) - A 2-year-old Bloomington boy has died from injuries he suffered when he fell from a horse during a Thanksgiving gathering at his grandfather’s farm.

Monroe County Coroner Nicole Meyer says that Lucas Ryan Stephenson died at IU Health Bloomington Hospital from injuries he suffered when the horse stepped on the youngster after he fell.

Lucas was the only child of Jake and Stephanie (Crowe) Stephenson of Bloomington. He attended the Little Whippersnappers Preschool.

The boy's maternal grandfather, Steve Crowe, says about 30 people who had gathered at his 120-acre eastern Greene County farm had just eaten Thanksgiving dinner when several of them went outside to enjoy the farm. He says his grandson and another person were on a horse when they both fell off of the animal.

Visitation for Lucas will be 2-6 p.m. Sunday at Allen Funeral Home. Funeral services are set for 10:30 a.m. Monday at the funeral home.
