Well this is interesting... sorry the article is not online. There is a photo of a completely upside down rider and people working around it. The photo caption says: "Police and rescue personnel pull a man out of a creek in Brookhaven after the riding mower he was on overturned and pinned him in the water."

:eek:

Story:

"Man was cutting it too close"

BROOKHAVEN - A Chester man escaped with only minor injuries after he was pinned face down in a creek by a large riding mower yesterday.

The Bobcat ZT223 mower Pablo Segura was riding on tipped over on a slippery hill at the Trimble Run condos on Bridgewater Road around 8:03 a.m. yesterday, pinning Segura underneath, according to Police Chief John Eller.

A resident of the complex saw what happened and alerted one of Segura's co-workers, who called police.

With the mower on top of his back, Segura struggled to keep his head above the water in the creek, which was about 8 inches deep, his co-worker said.

Brookhaven police and firefighters and Crozer paramedics were able to lift the Bobcat enough to allow Segura, 22, to get out from underneath. He was transported to Crozer-Chester Medical Center, where he was treated for an ankle injury and released.
