A Lincoln city worker has died from injuries he sustained when a riding lawn mower rolled on top of him.
Hospital spokeswoman Deb Hartman-Boehle says 37-year-old Eric Kohles died Friday morning. He had been hospitalized since the mower accident on Monday afternoon.
City officials have said Kohles was mowing a drainage easement when the mower rolled. Two workers found him trapped beneath the 1,200-pound mower. Kohles had worked for the city for about 2 1/2 years.
The city has suspended mowing ditches while officials investigate the accident.
