Danville, VA - A routine lawn mowing became very dangerous for a man Thursday evening in Danville.
Charles Carden was mowing his lawn on Baugh Street when the mower got away from him and he was left dangling over a rocky embankment.
He said apparently the ground was wetter than he had thought.
"I slid down and had to lock the brakes down just before I went over the edge it scared me to death I had called my wife and told her bye cause I knew I was gonna die" said Carden.
"The Fire department tied a rope and secured the lawnmower and got the patient off of it got him back up the hill" said Bobby Pleasant with The Danville Lifesaving Crew.
Carden was grateful to be alive and thankful for all the people who came to his rescue.
