BLACKSBURG, S.C. (AP) -- Authorities say a 76-year-old Blacksburg man has died while working on a lawn tractor.

Cherokee County Coroner Dennis Fowler said Noah Martin was under the tractor removing a blade when the hoist holding it toppled.

Fowler says Martin suffocated when the tractor pinned him to the ground.

The coroner says a family member found Martin's body around 8 p.m. Monday, but he likely died several hours before.

The death has been ruled an accident.
