SUNLAND PARK, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say they are investigating the death of a Sunland Park toddler who was apparently run over by his father.
Sunland Park police say the father brought his injured 1-1/2-year-old son to the police department Wednesday morning.
The father told police he accidentally ran over the child earlier in the day in the community of Anapra.
Officers and firefighters administered emergency aid and the boy was airlifted to a hospital.
But he was pronounced dead at about 9:30 a.m.
Authorities say the investigation is ongoing and did not release the name of father or son.
