Man found dead under lawnmower

A 60-year-old man has died after suffering a medical event while using a lawnmower.

St John was called to a home on Old Barn Rd, south of Auckland, at 5:20pm on Saturday to find the lawnmower on top of the man.

A spokesman said it appeared he suffered a medical event prior to that happening.

A coroner will determine the exact sequence of events, which is still unclear, the spokesman said.
