One person died after a lawnmower flipped in East Hempfield Township on Wednesday afternoon.

Emergency crews responded to the intersection of Oreville and Farmingdale roads, less than a mile from the Park City Center, at 12:31 p.m. for a rescue call. A dispatcher with Lancaster County-Wide Communications said a lawnmower had flipped over onto an “elderly” man and crews were working on getting him out.

Lancaster County Coroner Dr. Stephen Diamantoni said his office was called to the scene, and the person was pronounced dead. The person's name wasn't available Wednesday afternoon because next-of-kin hadn't been notified yet.
