CAMAS, Wash. (KMOV.com) -- An 18-month-old boy reportedly had his leg cut off in an accident with a riding lawn mower in Camas, Wash. Sunday afternoon.

The boy was reportedly injured when his grandfather was backing up the lawnmower at a home at Northeast 272nd Avenue and Northeast 36th Street.

At about 3:05 p.m., a helicopter responded to the home and flew the child to a local hospital in Portland, said Sgt. Craig Randall with the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators said they do not think drugs or alcohol were factors in the accident.
