A north central Kansas man has died after a mowing accident in Cloud County.
It happened in the 1600 block of 160th Rd., just outside of Concordia. The sheriff’s department said Bob Johnson, 63, was mowing on a steep slope, when his riding lawnmower tipped over on top of him.
A passerby managed to get the mower off Johnson and called 911. The victim was flown to a hospital where he later died.
Investigators said Johnson was riding a large, zero-turn lawnmower.
