PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – One person was killed during a lawn mowing incident Tuesday.

It happened around 3:45 p.m. at the Cherry Wood Golf Course along Truxall Road in Bell Township.

A man, who has not yet been identified, was killed while mowing the grass near the 14th hole of the golf course. He was found by a co-worker.

Police say the man could have been there for as long as an hour, but was already dead by the time the co-worker found him. He was killed after falling backward into the blades of the riding mower.

Officials say the maintenance staff Cherry Wood is very close and many were distraught over the news of their co-worker.

An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.
