Child, 2, Is Killed Riding On ATV

`A 2-year-old boy was killed in Charles County over the weekend when the child-size all-terrain vehicle he was operating overturned on him, according to the Charles County Sheriff’s Office.

The sheriff’s office said the boy was operating a Baja Wilderness 50 four-wheeler, which is designed for children 6 to 12 years old and equipped with a remote cutoff switch. When the boy’s mother turned the ATV off by the remote, the vehicle stopped but the front wheels turned, causing it to overturn on the boy, sheriff’s deputies said. He was wearing a helmet.’

It sucks that the kid died, but those ATV things can be pretty dangerous even for adults, let alone two year old.
