BUSHKILL TWP., Pa. — A 74-year-old Bushkill Township employee died in a lawn mower mishap Monday morning, according to the Northampton County Coroner's Office.

Louis Nagy was operating a riding mower when it happened at Albert Ponds Reserve along Albert Road, Coroner Zachary Lysek said.

It is believed Nagy was cutting grass along the bank of the pond when the mower tipped over while he was seated on it, pinning him beneath the mower in the pond, Lysek said.

The coroner's office was called to the scene at 10:44 a.m.

The cause and manner of death will be released once the investigation is complete, Lysek said.

He said no additional information would be released at this time.
