TOWN OF MARCY — A 60-year-old man was found drowned in Ninemile Creek in the Town of Marcy Tuesday evening after his tractor became submerged, according to law enforcement officials.

State police said they were notified at 7:10 p.m. Tuesday that 60-year-old Edward J. Niedzielski was missing. Troopers said Niedzielski had left his residence on Route 291 several hours prior on his tractor to mow his property.

A search of Ninemile Creek found the tractor submerged in water. Troopers said they continued to search the area and soon found Niedzielski face down and unconscious, floating in the creek. He was rushed to St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Utica where he was pronounced dead.

Troopers said an autopsy is scheduled with the Onondaga County Medical Examiner’s Office.
