A man is recovering after being trapped under a 3,000-pound lawn tractor in Merrimack, New Hampshire.

Police said a homeowner was driving the tractor on too steep of a slope when it rolled Sunday afternoon. He was pinned under the roll bar, which is designed to protect the driver from being crushed when the tractor rolls over.

Firefighters used inflatable air bags to stabilize and support the overturned tractor to free the man, whose name was not released.
