Landscaper caught under lawn mower in Flower Mound pond dies

A landscaper was killed in an accident with a lawn mower in Flower Mound earlier this week.

Flower Mound police said it happened Monday morning near Flower Mound Road and Clearpoint Drive.

The woman had been mowing the lawn and somehow ended up trapped under the commercial riding mower in a pond that was a few feet deep.

Witnesses tried to rescue her but couldn’t.

It took four firefighters to lift the heavy mower. Rescuers then pulled the victim from the water and started CPR.

She was taken to the hospital with a pulse and blood pressure but died from her injuries Tuesday afternoon.

The victim’s name has not yet been released.
