MECHANICSVILLE, VA (WWBT) -

An adult and child were injured during two separate incidents in the Mechanicsville Christmas Parade on Sunday.

Hanover Fire-EMS crews responded to a call for an injury around 3 p.m. on Atlee Road. Fire officials say an adult walked in front of a parade float. Their pant leg was pulled by the fender of a parade float, which caused the person to fall.

The person suffered a leg injury and was taken to an area hospital. Witnesses told NBC12 that a woman was injured. 

Crews also responded to a call for an injury in the 7300 block of Strain Avenue around 3:18 p.m.

According to fire officials, initial reports said a person was run over by a float. However, crews later found out that a child fell off the side of a float and received a minor injury.

Hanover Fire-EMS crews helped the child at the scene. The child was later taken to a nearby hospital.
