Young Worker killed in tragic lawnmower incident in Surrey

BCFED Health and Safety Centre No Comment

Our condolences to all friends and family.

The Surrey North Delta Leader Reports a 20-year-old man was killed while cutting grass last Friday in Glenwood Park.

At about 8:30 a.m. on July 29, the maintenance worker, who was cutting the grass in the Fraser Heights park, became trapped beneath the commercial lawnmower he was riding after it rolled into a pond.

RCMP have released few details, however witnesses say a co-worker and bystander helped lift the mower off the victim and performed CPR until emergency responders arrived.

It is unclear how long the man was trapped in the water or what caused the accident.

The victim died in hospital.
