Woman drowns in pond after getting pinned under lawnmower


Police say a southwestern Michigan woman drowned after accidentally driving a lawn tractor into a pond and becoming pinned underneath the vehicle.

Berrien County Sheriff's officials say 66-year-old Linda Marutz was mowing the lawn next to a pond in Bainbridge Township Friday when she drove into it.

Deputies say the machine rolled on top of her and she wasn't able to free herself.

The case remains under investigation.
