A three-year-old boy has died after being struck by a lawn mower his father was driving.
The boy was rushed to Pambula District Hospital on Saturday with serious injuries after being struck with lawn mower blades.
The boy later died, despite desperate resuscitation attempts by paramedics.
‘He (the father) invested himself in the poor child. He didn’t see it,” a police spokesman said.

Police are not expected to press charges, but must investigate such deaths to provide a report to the coroner.
“I don’t think anything you can do to the father will change the way he feels, unfortunately,” the police spokesman said.
“It’s unusual, it’s not a death caused by natural causes, so that’s why we’re doing what we’re doing.”
Karen Wright, Bega Valley Shire Councilor for South Pambula, said: “This is absolutely a tragedy and my heart goes out to the family.”
