Gardening…..Far Too Dangerous!

Woman killed by garden ornament

A British woman died when a heavy garden ornament cause her to drown in a shallow pond.

Norman Lunn came home to find his partner Ann Newton facedown in the water which is only four feet by four feet wide and one-and-a-half feet deep.

An ornamental tree trunk - which has an eerie face carved into it - had hooked onto the 58-year-old teacher, pinning her in the water causing her to drown in the couple's garden in Sunderland.

Norman said: "It's such a bizarre death. It has broken my heart.

"Her slippers were in the grass. She must have been kicking to try and get out. I tried to pull her out, but I couldn't."
