Man Killed In Mowing Accident

Associated Press - October 8, 2013 8:43 am

Shawnee County authorities say a Silver Lake man died in an apparent accident while mowing.

The body of 52-year-old Bernie M. Menhusen was found Monday night pinned beneath a riding lawn mower. Shawnee County sheriff’s Lt. Jay Simecka says Menhusen was dead at the scene.

Simecka says the sheriff’s office was called about 10 p.m. Monday after Menhusen’s family reported they hadn’t heard from him since about 1 p.m.

The Shawnee County’s Coroner’s office will determine the exact cause of death.

So what was this boy doing to cause the mower to go over on top of him. Don’t you think this is an important part of the story?
