SAVANNAH, Mo. — The Andrew County Sheriff's Department reported an 8-year-old child was injured in a farm accident Thursday.

Emergency personnel responded to the farm near County Road 431, west of Savannah, at about 5 p.m., said Andrew County Sheriff Bryan Atkins.

It was reported Cooper Schweizer had been playing near a plow but no one saw the accident, the sheriff said.

Family members estimated they found the child about four or five minutes after the accident under the plow.

No one knows how or why the plow fell on him, the sheriff said.

He has been transported to Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City in critical condition, according to the Sheriff's Department.

There hasn't been any update since the accident, Atkins said.
