A three-year-old boy died Thursday night after being run over by a tractor on a farm in Kettering, southern Tasmania.

Police said the tractor was being driven by the boy’s father at about at 7:30 pm, according to ABC News.

“Sadly, last night a three-year-old boy was killed as the result of a tragic tractor accident,” inspector David Wiss from Tasmania Police said.

“Unfortunately, the three-year-old boy was pronounced deceased at the scene.”

Inspector Wiss said police would not release details of the incident or the injuries to the boy.

“There’s nothing to suggest that this is other than a tragic accident,” he said.

“The family and the parents are understandably very traumatised by the incident.

“They are still trying to come to terms with the passing of their child.”
