CLEVELAND, NC (WBTV & AP) - A man who was mowing grass with a lawnmower which flipped and trapped him in a pond in western Rowan County Monday morning has died from his injuries.
The accident happened around 11:18 a.m. at Bill Russell's home at 1285 Phifer Road.
The victim was identified as 53-year-old Genovevo "Johnny" Garcia of Needmore Road.
A neighbor said Garcia often did various jobs around Russell's home and farm.
On Monday, Garcia was mowing grass near the edge of a pond when the mower tipped over and rolled into the water on top of Garcia.
Russell saw what happened and drove his four-wheeler over to the water to help. He attempted to move the mower, but it was too heavy for him to lift.
EMS workers on the scene estimate that Garcia was under the water from 11:18 a.m. until 11:45 a.m. Firefighters used a pulley system made of Russell's four-wheeler, a rope and a nearby tree to remove the mower.
Once Garcia was removed from the water, emergency workers administered CPR.
An ambulance rushed him to Davis Regional Medical Center in Statesville where he was pronounced dead.
