A Grove City man was killed after he fell into a pond while cutting grass.
John Walochik, 65, died Tuesday. State Police say he was cutting the lawn on a riding mower at the American Legion Post on Mercer Grove City Road in Findley Township, Mercer County when he slid into a retention pond.
The lawn mower was submerged in the 20-foot pond and only Walochik’s limbs were visible from the surface.
Several legion members arrived at the post shortly after the morning accident but wouldn’t discover Walochik until several hours later.
