golf course employee dies

Hanover golf course employee dies

Richmond Times-Dispatch Apr 11, 2005

A 25-year-old Hanover County Country Club employee apparently drowned today after he and the lawnmower he was operating fell into the South Anna River while cutting grass on the golf course.
The victim's name was being withheld by authorities until his relatives can be notified.
Sheriff's deputies were called to the Hanover Country Club at 14314 Country Club Drive, west of Ashland off state Route 54, about 11:20 a.m., said Hanover Sheriff's Sgt. Michael J. Trice.
The employee was receiving cardiopulmonary resuscitation when Hanover fire and EMS crews arrived. Paramedics continued those efforts as they transported him to Memorial Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Trice said authorities were told the employee had been cutting grass on a graded slope near the 12th tee when his riding lawnmower apparently tipped over and plunged into the South Anna River. It was unclear yesterday whether the lawnmower fell on him.
The incident remains under investigation.
Work hard and make it look easy
