“Occupational health and safety investigators are looking into this.” The Kitscoty branch of the RCMP was contacted at about 2:45 p.m., said Juan Huss, the sergeant in charge of the detachment. “A member of the public was walking down the street,” explained Sgt. Huss, “and he noticed a person underneath one of these large riding lawnmowers. So he quickly ran across the street, because these things weigh about 1,200 pounds. He quickly ran across the street to the fire department and asked for help.” The firefighters retrieved the worker from under the vehicle, but she had no pulse, so they began performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation on her until emergency medical services arrived, added Sgt. Huss. She was pronounced dead shortly afterwards. The victim had been hired by the Village of Dewberry to performance maintenance on its equipment, he said. “The jack that lifts up the mower has two safety pins on it, and apparently, the top safety pin was in place, but the bottom safety pin was not there, causing the thing to be unstable, and the person was working underneath the mower deck, and it landed on her.” Sgt.
