BROGUE, Pa. (AP) – A Pennsylvania man has been found dead, pinned beneath a lawnmower in a creek.

York County authorities say the man had been riding the mower before he was found unresponsive about 9:30 p.m. Sunday in Chanceford Township. That’s about 40 miles (64.4 kilometers) southeast of Harrisburg.

County Coroner Pamela Gray says the man was mowing on his property before he was found dead.
