Eighteen-Year-Old Drowns Working at Lakeville, Mass. Golf Course

A former three-sport athlete died in a tragic accident Friday morning while working at a golf course in Lakeville, Mass.

Greg Misodoulakis drowned while working as a groundskeeper at the Back Nine Club in Lakeville when he drove his lawnmower into a man-made lake.

Misodoulakis became trapped in the water underneath the mower, reports The Boston Globe. According to the paper, a spokeswoman for the Plymouth district attorney's office called the drowning "accidental."

A freshman-to-be at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Misodoulakis was an athlete while in high school winning awards for leadership and sportsmanship. 

According to the paper, an owner of the Back Nine claims that no one saw that accident. The owner did recall Misodoulakis, an employee for a couple of years, "a fine young man," and called the accident "terrible and tragic."
