A 1-year-old boy is in serious condition after getting his foot caught in a lawnmower Monday afternoon while a teenage boy was cutting grass on Detroit's west side.

The injury took place about 6:30 p.m. on the 6000 block of Asbury Park, which is south of West Warren and east of the Southfield Freeway. 

Police say a 15-year-old boy was cutting grass and when he turned around, the 1-year-old ran toward the lawnmower and got one of his feet caught in the blades.

After being transported to an area hospital, the boy was listed in serious condition, said Dontae Freeman, a Detroit Police Department spokesman. Police are investigating.
