An 80-year-old Morgan County man died tragically last Friday while running a bush hog on McNair Lane. According to Morgan County Sheriff’s Office reports, George McNair, McNair Lane, Madison, was found dead by his wife at approximately 12:30 p.m.

Reports state that McNair was using a tractor and bush hog at approximately 10 a.m. and when his wife, Eleanor Couture, checked on the man, she found him lying behind the bush hog.

Reports state that McNair, apparently, had slid off the tractor while mowing near a steep incline and was struck by the bush hog.

McNair was pronounced dead at the scene by Morgan County Coroner Adam Carter.
