PERRYVILLE - A 4-year-old girl was airlifted to the University of Kentucky Medical Center after being injured in a lawn mower accident Saturday at her home at 260 Claunch Road.
The girl was identified as Natalie Perez. Her grandfather, Danny Jones, said he was cutting the yard when Natalie tried to climb his riding lawn mower. She slipped and lodged her foot under the mower, cutting off part of her big toe, Jones said.
"I told her all morning to get off of it, but she wouldn't listen," Jones said.
Jones went on to say that medical personnel on the scene assured him that Natalie was in stable condition. Her parents, Ashley and Daurio Perez, accompanied her to the medical center.
