A 14-year-old boy has been run over by a tractor while bush hogging land on Lady’s Island.

Fire department spokesman Scott Harris says emergency responders found the teen lying face down near a small tractor around noon Saturday with severe head trauma and bleeding.

The unidentified boy was airlifted to the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. Harris says his injuries were life-threatening. His condition hours later was unknown.

Harris says it appears the tractor slipped out of gear after the boy climbed off and walked in front of it.
