Collin County Worker Drowns When Mower Pins Him Underwater

CBS Dallas / Fort Worth

PLANO (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Police say it appears a man cutting grass at a North Texas golf course drowned when his mower toppled into a pond and pinned him underwater.

Plano Fire-Rescue Capt. Peggy Harrell says a lawn maintenance crew that contracts with The Courses at Watters Creek was working Monday morning when the riding mower was seen in the water. Another member of the work crew discovered the man underneath and pulled him from the water. Attempts to revive him were unsuccessful. Authorities have not released his identity.

The man was last seen about 30 minutes before being found in the water.

It’s the second time a person has drowned at the course, which is a City of Allen property, in recent months. It remains unclear what prompted a man in June to enter a large pond at the course.
