A 3-year-old boy was airlifted to a Oklahoma City hospital Saturday morning after he was accidentally backed over by a relatives vehicle after he had fallen out.
It is unclear how the child fell out of the vehicle.
The child suffered a leg injury and road rash above his waist after he was seen underneath the family’s Suburban vehicle.
He was transported to the Eagle Med helicopter from the Guthrie ambulance with oxygen and an IV.
According to Kids and Cars, a group that works on child safety around cars, about 50 children are backed over every week in the United States.
