According to the Licking County Sheriff’s Office, around 5 pm, the boy who was riding with his father, Shawn Watson, fell off the tractor when Watson was hauling firewood from a wooded area. A second 11 year old child, also riding the tractor, ran to the residence and called 911.

The child was taken to Licking Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead. The incident remains under investigation.
