Child's neck cut while riding ATV


LINN COUNTY (KWWL)-- A six-year-old child is injured after his throat is cut while riding an ATV.

The Linn County Sheriff's Office says Nicholas Emig of Mt. Vernon was riding a four wheeler in a farm field on Mt Vernon Road when he attempted to drive under string that was drawn for fence construction.

When he passed under, Emig got caught.  His neck was cut.

He was taken to the hospital with what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries.
