4-year-old boy dies in snow plowing accident

An Akeley father accidentally backed over his 4-year-old son and killed him while plowing snow on Thursday, according to the Star Tribune.

According to relatives, Kyle Vredenburg was riding his bicycle towards the area where his father was plowing, when his sister tried to call him back closer but it was too late, reported the Star Tribune.

A family relative said Ron Vredenburg, Kyle's father, had always stressed the importance of safety around equipment, and said that he was moving snow quite a distance from the house, reported Duluth News Tribune.

"The family wants to stress that this was an accident...a very sad and tragic accident," said Marv Vredenburg, brother of Ron Vredenburg, according to the Duluth News Tribune.
