Well-known Camilla man dies in lawn mower accident

CAMILLA, GA (WALB) - A Mitchell County man died Saturday evening while mowing his lawn. 68-year-old Colon Harrington was cutting grass near his home off Highway 19 south of Camilla.

Mitchell County Sheriff's Deputies say it overturned while he was mowing an embankment near the front of his home.

His wife, Betty Harrington, says she was in the garden when she heard sirens and saw several cars pull up to the area.  An autopsy is still being completed, but deputies believe the John Deer lawn mower over turned on Mr. Harrington. 

Mr. Harrington had managed BC Moores Department store for several years. His wife says he would regularly donate clothes to people in the community. She says her husband was involved in church and always helped people anytime he could.

Funeral services will be held for Mr. Harrington Wednesday at Parker Bramlett Funeral Home in Camilla.
