DELTONA, Fla. - A 10-year-old boy's leg was run over by a float's flatbed truck during a Christmas parade in Deltona, according to Volusia County deputies.

Officials say the boy was walking alongside the float Saturday night when he reached into it and got tangled in the truck's wheel.

Volusia County sheriff's spokesman Gary Davidson said that the boy "was going to retrieve some candy and got too close to the float."

The parade was stopped as paramedics freed the boy from the truck's wheel bed.

Davidson described the boy's injuries as minor.
