HESPERIA, Calif. (AP) - A father using a Bobcat tractor in his Southern California desert backyard has accidentally run over his twin toddlers, killing one of the boys.

The other son was taken to a hospital for treatment of a minor foot injury.

San Bernardino County sheriff's spokeswoman Susan Rose says the father called 911 on Thursday afternoon and said he ran over his son while doing construction work in the backyard of his Hesperia home.

The twins were using a nearby play set.

The Victorville Daily Press says the father, whose name has been withheld, pulled the tractor forward and he heard a scream when he went into reverse.

The distraught father tried to revive the boy but he was dead at the scene.
