Adams Boy Injured in Mower Accident

BEATRICE –  A five-year-old child has been injured in a lawn mower accident, in Adams.

Gage County Sheriff’s investigators say Adams Fire and Rescue was sent to 405 Ash Street in Adams at around 3:55 p-m, Tuesday.

Authorities say Bentley Campbell was playing in the yard while his mother was mowing the lawn.  Deputies say the boy apparently attempted to sneak up on his mother from behind, to scare her.  That’s when she began backing up the mower, running over Bentley.

Rescue personnel treated the child at the scene for deep cuts to one of his legs.

A medical helicopter was summoned and landed on the Adams Ball Diamond, transporting the child to Bryan LGH Trauma Center, in Lincoln.
