Three-year-old killed after struck by tractor

By Heartland News

COBDEN, IL (KFVS) - A three-year-old girl has been killed after she was accidentally run over by a tractor driven by her father.

Three-year-old Delia Kaszubski was playing in her family's yard in rural Cobden and her dad was driving a tractor getting ready to plant a field.

He was watching the girl play in the yard, but the last time he looked she was missing.  That's when she was struck by the tractor, according to Union County Deputy Coroner Phil Hileman.

Hileman says she had evidently run out into the field and her dad didn't see her.

Delia was pronounced dead at the Union County Hospital at 3:15 p.m. Thursday.

Visitation for the Delia will be held at Rendleman-Hileman Funeral Home on Sunday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.  The funeral will be at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Anna at 10 a.m. Monday.
