A three-year-old Waterloo boy has died after being run over by the wheel of a horse-drawn wagon.
Sheriff’s deputies say they were called to Whiskey Hill Road in Waterloo around 4 p.m. Wednesday for the report of a young boy who had fallen from an Amish wagon.
Deputies say the boy’s father was driving a horse-drawn wagon and trailer that was transporting lambs when the boy jumped off the wagon. Investigators say he attempted to get back on the wagon when he was run over by the wheel of the trailer. The boy was treated at the scene and taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Deputies say the investigation is ongoing.
