Michigan girl killed by riding lawn mower

A western Michigan man who was riding a lawn mower in his yard says he didn't see his 5-year-old daughter until the machine hit and ran her over.

Kent County sheriff's Capt. Kevin Kelley says Jenna Ricord may have run out into the yard Tuesday evening and then tripped in the grass. She was dead at the scene of the accident at the family's home in Solon Township, about 20 miles north of Grand Rapids.

Kelley tells The Grand Rapids Press that at the time of the accident, the father was looking in a different direction and "never noticed her until the tractor was on top of her."
