A man was injured when a riding lawnmower toppled over on him today in Fairfield.

Fairfield firefighters say the worker was mowing the grass in the rear yard of a home on Harbor Road, when the lawn tractor began to slide backwards, down a steep part of the yard.

The riding mower went over a retaining wall, and landed on top of the man.

A co-worker helped to get the man out from underneath the mower, and emergency crews were called.

The man was taken to St. Vincent’s Medical Center for treatment.
