Man found dead under mower in Hutchinson

KSAL StaffAugust 24, 2014

An 86-year-old man has died in a mowing accident in Hutchinson.

The Hutchinson News reports that Harold E. Swanson of Hutchinson died Friday. Patrol Capt. Darrian Campbell said Swanson had been using a mower pulled behind a tractor to cut grass when he took a “not normal” path that ended in the middle of the yard.

Campbell says there were cuts on Swanson’s body from the mower blades, and it appeared he was dragged under it somehow. He said it would take a few weeks until autopsy reports confirm or narrow down the possibilities of the cause of death.

Swanson’s relatives were early settlers in Reno County, and he was a well-known farmer in the Hutchinson area.
