HOKKAIDO (TR) – An 86-year-old man died after he was run over by his snow blower in Sumita City, police said on Friday.

Yoshio Ishiwaki was found dead under his snow blower in his garage by officers responding to an emergency call from a neighbor saying “someone was run over by a snow blower” at around 10:30 a.m., TV Asahi reports (Nov. 26).

Ishiwaki was putting away his 500-kilogram snow blower alone after clearing away snow with his family when he likely fell and was run over, police said.
