The 4th of July is meant for fireworks and parades to celebrate our Independence. But in Oklahoma, the holiday turned tragic after a father driving a float, ran over his 8-year-old son.

According to KFOR in Oklahoma, the boy either jumped or fell off the float as they were nearing the end of the parade route.  A nurse administered CPR until the ambulance arrived. The boy was pronounced dead at the hospital.
