A one-year old child is dead after being run over by a piece of farming equipment in Yates County.

The Yates County Sheriff's Department says they were called to a farm on Hoyt Road in Milo late this morning. They found a man had been driving a skid steer loader, and the child was run over when he either walked or ran into the machine's path. The driver was alerted to what had happened, stopped the machine and pulled the child from under the machine. But the child died at the scene.

An investigation is continuing.
