A three-year-old Bokeelia boy was injured Sunday when he fell off a scooter and his foot slipped under a riding lawnmower at his Lee County home.
The Lee County Sheriff's Office reported that John Christopher Fox Jr. suffered a severe injury to his right foot which was sliced halfway through by the blade on a John Deere model riding mower. The mower was backing up at the time, driven by John Steiner, 31. The report says Steiner is the boyfriend of the boy's mother, Amber St. George, 26.
The sheriff's report said the boy's foot was wrapped in a dish cloth and he was sitting in the kitchen sink when a deputy arrived. The boy was transported to Lee Memorial by Med Flight. Further information was not available.
