A Florida toddler lost both her legs and part of her hand after she ran in front of a lawnmower her father was driving Wednesday night.

Authorities tell MyFoxTampaBay.com the girl's father was driving his riding lawnmower when the child ran towards him. The man says his daughter fell in front of the lawnmower and he was unable to stop it from running her over.

"She suffered from immediate amputations to both legs below the knees and partial amputation on her hand," Palm Harbor Fire Rescue said in a media release.

The girl was flown to Tampa General Hospital, where her parents are also being treated for symptoms related to extreme emotional duress.
