Police: Man Dies On Side Of Road After Lawnmower Falls On Top Of Him

VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – A man was found dead under a lawnmower Sunday after it fell on top of him.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers said they think Michael Giles stopped on the side of the road and got on top of a riding lawnmower that was on a trailer attached to his truck, WKMG reported.

Troopers believe that the man got on top of it because it possibly shifted while he was driving near Brownlee Road and Raulerson Road.

But at some point, the lawnmower fell off of the trailer and onto Giles. The engine was still running when a passerby found him under the mower.

Troopers are looking for any witnesses and said that the incident is under investigation.
