New York Post - - NEWS -

Au­thor­i­ties are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the death of a 79-year-old western New York man whose rid­ing lawn­mower plunged off a 30-foot-high bluff over­look­ing Lake On­tario.

The man’s rel­a­tives found him Sun- day evening at the bot­tom of the bluff along the shore­line in the town of Web­ster, just east of Rochester, po­lice said. The fam­ily last saw him ear­lier in the af­ter­noon when he was mow­ing his lawn.

It took fire­fight­ers and a crew from the nearby Coast Guard sta­tion sev­eral hours to re­cover the body.

The vic­tim’s name hasn’t been re­leased. The cause of death has not been de­ter­mined.
