Woodstock man dies in lawnmower accident

A 78-year-old Woodstock man died Monday in a lawnmower accident on his property in the 1000 block of Wiseman Road.

Deputies responding to a call from a neighbor at 1:53 p.m. arrived to find the riding lawnmower in a ditch and Alvin Cook lying under it, said Lt. Darcy Dellinger of the Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office.

Paramedics took Cook to Shenandoah Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Dellinger said.

Cook was the second elderly person in the area to die under similar circumstances in the last month. Warren County deputies found Donald Allen Bohlman, 83, pinned under a mower on Browntown Road in Warren County in early September.
