Eight-year-old boy injured, airlifted to hospital after lawn tractor tips over

Police say an eight-year-old Nova Scotia boy was flown to hospital in Halifax after being injured when the lawn tractor he was riding on tipped over.

RCMP Cpl. Jennifer Clarke says a 911 call came in at about 4 p.m. Sunday, indicating the boy was hurt in the accident near a home on Canaan Road in Morristown.

She says police and the boy's parents provided first aid before paramedics arrived and treated the young boy.

He was then taken to a site near the home and flown by LifeFlight to Halifax.

Police did not provide any information on the nature of the boy's injuries or his condition.

Clarke says the investigation into the matter is continuing.
