About 5 p.m. the boy was running alongside a large lawn tractor at his home in the 100 block of Creek Road. The boy slipped and slid partially under the tractor.

The boy was not believed to have been cut by the mower blades, but suffered other serious injuries.

Emergency crews responded, and the boy was flown by helicopter to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. His condition was not immediately available.
