RACINE, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)   A maintenance worker at a Racine County golf course was killed yesterday, after a large tree branch fell on him. It happened at the Ives Grove Golf Course in Yorkville.

Sheriff’s deputies said 83-year-old William Cieszynski of Caledonia was on a riding lawn mower when the branch came down, and he was pinned between the tree branch and the steering wheel. A preliminary investigation shows that a large roll-bar on the mower struck the overhanging branch, and that’s apparently how it fell onto the operator.

Cieszynski was employed by a company that’s hired by Racine County to run and maintain the golf course.
