A 2-year-old Laporte boy died Wednesday after receiving a severe head injury in a freak accident.

The child was riding in a Skidsteer loader with his father, 41-year-old Trevor Lindahl of Laporte.

Hubbard County authorities said "the child fell forward and his head came in contact with the loader as it was being lowered." The boy suffered severe head trauma.

Although authorities called for a medevac helicopter, the boy died at the scene, shortly after 12:30 p.m.

The body was taken to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy. The accident remains under investigation.
