18-year-old Golf Course Employee Drowns in Water Hazard

This Friday, an 18-year-old golf course employee drowned while cutting grass at a Massachusetts golf course.

The victim, a college student, was operating a ride-on lawn mower at a Lakeville golf course when he drove into a manmade water hazard.

The worker was pinned by his ride-on lawn mower under approximately five feet of water. The young man was discovered about twenty minutes after being submerged. He was given CPR at the scene of the work accident and was rushed to Morton Hospital and Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

The young worker had just started school at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

According to the District Attorney, the incident appears to be a tragic accident.
