SPRINGFIELD, Ohio

Authorities say a man died after the riding mower he was operating apparently tipped over into a lake and trapped him.

Clark County sheriff’s Sgt. Chad Brown said David Swadener, 66, was pronounced dead at a Dayton hospital after the accident Wednesday at a campground.

Brown said no one knows how long Swadener was in the water. He was last seen about 10 a.m. Wednesday on the Bass Lake Campground property. Three men discovered the mower, overturned in the water, just after 5 p.m. They hooked up a chain to a pickup truck to flip the mower.

Brown said Swadener lived at the 42-acre campground until recently and did odd jobs.
