A farming accident just South of Fort Macleod claimed the life of a three year old boy on Tuesday.

Emergency services responded to the call just after noon, but declared the boy deceased on the scene.

STARS air ambulance was dispatched, but was then halted after EMS arrived.

The toddler was reportedly killed by a tractor after having fallen off.

Police say the death was a tragic accident and won't be laying any charges as a result.
