KSAL StaffJuly 2, 2016

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – A 79-year-old Kansas man is dead after his riding lawnmower rolled into a creek near his Wichita home and trapped him underneath.

The Wichita Eagle reports police responded to the 911 call around 3 p.m. Thursday after the man’s wife found him. Police spokeswoman Nikki Woodrow says he was pronounced dead at the scene.

It wasn’t clear how long the man had been trapped.

It was the second fatal Wichita lawnmower mishap in as many days.

On Wednesday, a 63-year man who owns a lawn care business was trapped under a mower he was repairing at his home. The motor was still running when he was found.

He also was pronounced dead at the scene.
