INDIANAPOLIS -- A 62-year-old Daleville man drowned Sunday afternoon after he fell into the creek while mowing and was trapped under his mower. 

It happened at a home in the 8300 block of S. Pursley Road. 

The Delaware County Coroner says Jeffery Foster was mowing his property, which borders Bell Creek, when his mower slid down the bank and into the water. 

Foster was trapped beneath his mower in the water for an unknown amount of time. He was pronounced dead at the scene. 

An autopsy will be performed at Indiana University Health Ball Memorial Hospital on Monday to determine the cause of death.
