Toddler Survives After Being Run Over 4 Times Mom Thought Van Was Hitting Landscaping Timber POSTED: 9:49 a.m. EST March 19, 2003 GERMANTOWN, Wis. -- A Germantown, Wis., woman said God must be watching over her little boy. Police said her 2-year old son survived after she accidentally ran over him -- four times -- with her 4,600-pound van. Police said the mother thought the wheels were hitting landscaping timber near the front lawn Tuesday, so she pulled forward and backed up again. Police said the boy was crying and had good vital signs when emergency workers arrived. The van had run over his chest and legs. He's in the hospital with a broken thigh and liver damage, but is expected to recover. A relative had been watching the boy, but said the toddler had walked outside.
