Lawnmower Runs Over Hanger; Injures Boy

A strange accident involving a lawnmower seriously injures a three-year-old boy.

Authorities say Christopher Dodaro's father was mowing his backyard lawn in unincorporated McHenry County Saturday afternoon when the lawnmower ran over a wire clothes hanger.

A chunk of wire flew out from under the mower and embedded in the boy's chest.

The boy was taken to Northern Illinois Medical Center in MchHenry and later airlifted to Rockford Memorial Hospital.

He's now in fair condition.
