Man drowns while mowing the lawn.

If you’ve got to die anyway then you may as well do it in a memorable way:

The accident happened when a work crew from Precision Lawn Care was mowing the grounds of the North East Business Center off Route 17K.

Police said Jorge Trinidad, 25, was riding a mower when he rolled into a pond. The mower fell on top of him, pinning him under about 3 feet of water.

I think this qualifies as a great example of a freak accident. Trinidad didn’t do anything particularly stupid, just happened to fall victim to a malevolent lawnmower.

  1. OMG.  This 6/6/6, the Debbil walks the earth… as a lawnmower.

    The Days of Mowelation are here.  Repent, ye of little faith and long grass.

  2. Um… how do you drive your mower *into a pond* without doing anything stupid?  I must have missed the part where he was just driving along when Great Cthulhu reached up out of the pond and yanked him in.

    Ordinarily, ponds are stationary and easily visible hazards.  I’d say it takes quite a bit of stupidity to drive into one – especially in a vehicle with a top speed of maybe 10 mph.

    Prob’ly couldn’t get his seat belt undone quickly enough. LOL

  4. Ever watch the TV series “Dead Like Me”?

    The main character is killed in the first episode. She’s hit in the head with a toilet seat fallen from Mir……..

    Kind of like the film ‘Snatch’. Guy reverses into a stationary van.  ‘It came at me from a funny angle’ to which the reply was ‘It was behind you, when you are backing up things come at you from behind’

    (been a couople of years- I’m sure somebody will correct me!)
