Vienna - Hospital officials say a child is in critical condition after his father's jacked-up car fell, jamming his head between the vehicle and the pavement.

The accident occurred in the village of Ligist, near Graz, after the 4-year boy stuck his head under the car, which was jacked up for repairs.

The child was rushed to the Graz Children's Clinic on Sunday. The clinic said he was in an artificially induced coma following an operation.
