On March 7, 1990, Employee #1 was operating the Excel Hustler, 295 riding type rotary lawnmower, Serial Number D 241-352, when cutting a flat area of grass. It seems that Employee #1 went down a nearby embankment and fell off the mower. As Employee #1 fell, he apparently pulled the control lever over and bent it behind another lever causing the lawnmower to continue going in a circle. The lawnmower ran over Employee #1 and he couldn't get it off him. Employee #1 died of asphyxia.
