When Deputies arrived, they observed a helmet and ear protection the man was last seen wearing floating in a pond on the property.
As Deputies approached, they also observed a lawn mower submerged in the water. Off Duty Deputy, Ben Knapp, entered the water and located a male, trapped underneath the lawn mower.
