An emergency helicopter flew a child injured in an accident on a Maxatawny Township farm Friday afternoon to a Lehigh County trauma center.

Initial reports indicated the helicopter was directed to a farm in the 700 block of Siegfriedale Road between Kunkle and Meadow roads about 5:40 p.m.

Emergency personnel said the victim was standing near a farm tractor when a wheel fell off striking the 12-year-old in the head. Emergency personnel reported the child was bleeding from the nose and ears but was conscious.
