Hay roll falls onto 5-year-old child

Posted: Updated:

A 5-year-old child hit by a falling hay roll at a farm in Trigg County, KY, was flown to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital Monday, according to investigators.

The Trigg County Sheriff's Office said it happened just after 11:30 a.m. when a roll of hay was being loaded off a trailer at a farm on Sammy Gunn Road, off Delmont Church Road.

Deputies said the hay fell from a height of about 8 feet and landed on the child.

Trigg County paramedics transported the 5-year-old to Highways 139 and 164, where a helicopter then flew the child to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital.

The child's name and condition were not available, according to investigators.
