Final Surgery For Palm Harbor Toddler Who Lost Both Feet In Lawnmower Accident

PALM HARBOR, Fla (970 WFLA)- Little Ireland Nugent underwent her fourth and final surgery Monday after loosing both of her feet in a lawmower accident.

According to a Facebook page established by the family's church, she's doing well.

The two-year-old was playing in the family's front yard in Palm Harbor last week when her dad, who was operating a riding lawnmower, accidently backed over his daughter.

Ireland's mom, Nichole Nugent, says her daughter has a lot of spunk and will run again.  In fact, one group says it will supply Ireland with prosthetics for the rest of her life.

There is a fund set up through Trinity Presbyterian Church in Clearwater to help the family.
