Another man hurt while mowing

A 64-YEAR-old man is lucky to be alive after he fell 2m down an embankment and a ride-on mower he was operating landed on top of him.

According to a NSW Ambulance spokeswoman, the man sustained injuries to his left leg, right arm and head.

The spokeswoman said the accident occurred at 11.37am in Binalong Ct, Upper Burringbar.

Paramedics stabilised the man at the scene before transporting him to Tweed Hospital.

Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter was called to the scene but was turned back after ground medical staff stabilised the patient.

It follows a separate incident earlier this week where another man suffered chest cuts after falling beside his self-propelled mower at Uki.
