66 year old guy died yesterday at our local golf course. He was running a john deere greens mower. It was slightly raining, wet and he was mowing next to a small river that runs through the course. He got to close, slide off the embankment and tipped the mower over with him trapped under it all while being in the water. Not sure if he drowned or weight of machine but either way they found part of his upper body submerged in the river. He has worked at the course for a while. Knew the mowers, the river, the embankment etc but just like that. So no matter how many hours we spend on a machine, or how many times we may have mowed that place, things happen!
