Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 202338190 Event: 09/25/2002Employee Drowns When Mower Overturns
Employee #1 was operating a Tri-Kut 5000 Mower, a "Greens Mower," on the Tee Cap of Hole Number 14 at the Pinecrest Golf Club, when the mower slid on the wet grass and went into an adjacent drainage ditch. The mower overturned and trapped Employee #1 underwater causing his death by drowning. The terrain between the Tee Cap and the drainage ditch was uneven and the vegetation near the ditch was overgrown and may have obscured the edge of the ditch from the employee's view. The lack of tread on the "Greens Mower," along with the wet grass, may also have been a contributing factor to the accident.
