PALATINE, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a 1-year-old girl is expected to make a full recovery from injuries suffered when she was trampled by a horse on her Amish family's farm in the Mohawk Valley.

State police tell The Daily Gazette of Schenectady that the accident occurred Sunday while the girl's parents were milking cows at the farm in the Montgomery County town of Palatine, 45 miles northwest of Albany.

Troopers say the baby was on a small cart while her siblings played nearby. One of the children was playing with a horse that grew skittish and bolted from the barn.

Police say the horse tripped over the cart and stepped on the baby.

The girl was taken to Albany Medical Center, where she's being treated for broken ribs and a lacerated liver.
