At about that time, the 21-year-old woman was found fatally injured underneath a riding lawnmower under which she had been doing some maintenance work. The Ministry was notified “at about 4:30 on the 13th and was onsite at about 8:30 that evening,” said Kiel. “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.
