A 21-year-old Saskatchewan woman is dead after the large lawn mower she was working on fell on her in the Town of Dewberry maintenance yard on Tuesday. A man who was walking by saw the woman trapped beneath the large tractor mower around 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday and ran across the street to the fire station to get help, said Sgt. Juan Huss, speaking on behalf of the Kitscoty RCMP on Wednesday. “She was doing some maintenance work on that and it was jacked up and unfortunately she was underneath and it fell and pinned her under the tractor,” Huss said. Fire crews did CPR until emergency medical services personnel showed up. Paramedics took over, but she was pronounced dead shortly after. “Her family has been advised,” he said, adding the woman’s name will not be released. Huss said Occupational Health and Safety is investigating because her death is a workplace fatality. Dewberry is approximately 200 km east of Edmonton.
