• A 12-year-old Leavenworth boy was transported to an area hospital by an air ambulance around 2:24 p.m. Sunday from his home in the 25400 block of 211th St. The boy was following his father up a hill in an International 826 tractor. The man’s truck, which was carrying six bales of hay, began to spin and slide backwards. The report states the boy panicked, pushed in the tractor’s clutch, which put the vehicle out of gear. The tractor began to roll down the hill. The boy jumped out of the tractor, but was struck by the tractor’s front tire. The tractor stopped in a pond and was removed without damage. Members of the Alexandria Township Fire Department and the Leavenworth County EMS responded to the scene.
