Southern Illinois man dies when tractor overturns into pond

ASHLEY, Ill. (AP) — Authorities say a southern Illinois man was killed when his tractor overturned into a pond and trapped him under water. Washington County Coroner Mark Styninger says 59-year-old David L. Paszkiewicz of Ashley died Thursday night. The Belleville News Democrat reports that emergency crews were called at about 8:40 p.m. and firefighters recovered his body. He was pronounced dead at 9:20 p.m. Styninger says the owner of land that Paskiewicz was mowing found him and called authorities after he was notified by Paskiewicz’s family that he hadn’t returned home by 8 p.m. The coroner says he didn’t know how long Paszkiewicz was under water or the depth of the water. Styninger says an autopsy won’t be performed.
