MAPLETON — A 2 1/2-year-old boy was taken to Primary Children's Medical Center Monday after he lost several toes and part of his heel in a lawn-mower accident.

The accident is still under investigation, but it appears the child was injured when a riding lawn mower ran over him near 800 West and 1600 South around noon, said Mapleton Police Chief Dean Pettersson. He did not say who was driving the mower. The boy lost his big and little toes and a portion of his heel, said the child's aunt, Marci Giles.
