WELLINGTON - A man using a riding mower behind the Tavern on the Green drowned after the mower fell on top of him and pinned him underwater in a lake this morning, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said.
The unidentified man was found dead about 10 a.m. in the 3400 block of Equestrian Club Road, sheriff's spokeswoman Eric Davis said.
He may have been underwater for as much as an hour, Davis said.
The man lost control of the mower along the edge of the lake, and it flipped on top of him, Davis said.
