A man is dead after a workplace incident involving a ride-on lawnmower in Drayton Valley on Thursday.
The man, who Occupational Health and Safety believe to be in his 20s, was found in a pond with the mower.
“Our thoughts are with the worker’s family and co-workers,” OHS spokesperson Kathy Kiel said in a statement on Friday.
This was the second workplace-related fatality on Thursday. At approximately 7 a.m., RCMP responded to an incident at a drilling site northwest of Consort.
A 35-year-old man from Calgary was found dead. RCMP said early indications show the victim was killed during a pressure test on the site. OHS is also investigating that incident.
No further information on either death is available at this time.
The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. – Deuteronomy 28:12
