This family needs a lot of prayers and support right now.  Losing someone so precious and losing them in this manner is unbearable and friends, family, and all of us as a community can only be here with our love and support.

KTVB reports that just after 9 o'clock last night, deputies were dispatched to a private property just northwest of Jerome, Idaho.  33-year-old Renato Rivera was operating a tractor, preparing to feed his calves when 2-year-old Jaime Rivera Jr. slipped in front of the tractor unnoticed.  Renato pulled forward, running over the toddler and at that point, there was nothing that could be done.  Jaime was pronounced dead at the scene.

The accident is under investigation as all accidents of this nature are but no charges have been filed and the horrific loss this family feels right now is what the focus on.  Again, please pray for the Rivera family.
