A one-year-old McIntire girl is dead after falling off of a tractor that was driven by her father. The accident happened shortly before 11 o’clock Tuesday morning about three miles east of Meyer and a mile-and-a-quarter south of the Iowa-Minnesota state line in Mitchell County.

Dead is Cecillia Retterath, who, according to the Iowa State Patrol, was riding in a tractor driven by her father David Retterath, as he was mowing a pasture when the tractor hit a bump, causing Cecillia to fall off. Cecillia was pronounced dead at the scene.
