It's a tragic end for a woman who accidentally fell into a backyard swimming pool with a lawnmower over the weekend. 30-year-old Lucinda Godinez of Newhall had been doing paid landscaping with her husband at a home in the Santa Clarita Valley on Friday morning when she fell.

Her husband had been at work on the front lawn at the time of the accident; he is who found Godinez in the pool.

Godinez was taken to the hospital and put on life support, however she died Saturday afternoon.
