Toddler In Critical Condition After Tractor Accident

In breaking news, a 15-month-old girl has been critically injured after an accident on a farm in Bass, near Phillip Island.

It is understood that the toddler was sitting in a home-made safety device on a tractor when she slipped under the wheel.

She was sitting with her grandfather at the time.

"It was a pretty crude device that didn't do the job...she's slipped from the tractor down under the wheel," Sergeant Barry McCoy said.

The child has been airlifted to the Royal Children's Hospital.

She is in a critical condition.
