Workers, Golfers Save Man Trapped Under Lawnmower

OAKHAM (CBS) – Gary Donlin not only owns Quail Hollow Golf and Country Club in Oakham, he also mows it. Gary was operating a 1,000 pound industrial mower when it suddenly flipped, pinning him underneath.

“I pretty much thought I was a goner,” Gary tells WBZ.

He said just as he was about to pass out, some delivery workers spotted the smoke and ran over to help.

Gary says, “They lifted the machine off of me in the nick of time.”

Though he broke his back in two places, he is thankful to be alive.

He says he will be in a cast for the next six weeks.
