Around 1:30 p.m. first responders were dispatched to what was described as a personal injury accident involving a lawn mower.

Crews found the machine down a steep embankment and quickly came up with a plan to get the person inside out.

First responders used a rope rigging system and deployed a stokes basket to get the operator out of the machine safely.

The operator was transported to a nearby hospital with non life threatening injuries, Clyde firefighters said in a release.
