(KSL News) Two 10-year old boys were hurt in separate accidents during Kaysville's Fourth of July parade.

The accidents didn't happen until the end of the parade, when parade participants and spectators began the traditional water fight. Police first received a call that a 10-year-old boy's foot was run over by a trailer. He was taken by his parents to Primary Medical Children's Hospital.

And then another 10-year-old boy slipped from the trailer he was riding on and fell under a wheel.

Jeff Patane witnessed the accident. He said, "Just saw the tire go over him. So I dropped my gun, went up and started lifting."

Emergency crews initially thought the boy's torso was injured and air-lifted him to the hospital as precaution. But police now say it was the boy's leg that was hurt, and that he is O.K.
