3-year-old hit and killed after jumping off moving wagon

A 3-year-old was killed when he jumped off of a moving wagon and was run over by a wheel of the wagon on Thursday.

Deputies say they were called to Whiskey Hill Road in Waterloo, the Town of Junius, around 4:00 p.m. for a report for an injured child that had fallen from an Amish wagon.

Deputies say Chris Schumucker Jr., 36, had his three sons, 10-year-old David, 6-year-old Victor and 3-year-old Lester in a small wagon as he was transporting lambs from one pasture to another.

Deputies say Lester jumped off the wagon. When he tried to get back on the wagon, he was run over by the wheel of the trailer.

The child was taken to Geneva General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The investigation is continuing.
