I first learned about this from The DailyVoice.com

At first glance, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Could this possibly be true?

The answer (tragically) is, Yes.

A Bergen County, New Jersey man has reportedly taken his own life (yesterday) by placing his head inside a running lawnmower.

He allegedly positioned rocks to keep the lawnmower running according to the DailyVoice.com report.


At first, responders didn't know what happened after finding the reported 33-year-old Fair Lawn man's body in his backyard.

However, one source has said that the man left a suicide note, confirming his intentions.
