MACON COUNTY, Mo. – A two year old from rural Laplata lost his right foot and may lose his left after a farm accident in Macon County Monday afternoon.
Levi Borntrager walked into the sickle bar of a tractor mower before his father was aware he was in the field. Emergency crews were called to the farm, about five miles southwest of LaPlata, a little after 3:30 p.m., Monday afternoon.
Levi was flown to University Hospital, where they are trying to save the left foot.
