Steven Bowron's family received national attention last year when his teenage daughter rescued him as he was pinned underneath the tractor in a farm pond. She held his head above water until authorities arrived.
Tuesday, Bowron was treated at a local hospital for injuries he suffered while apparently riding his tractor.
Laura Bowron says her husband suffered injuries to his head and lower back. She didn't know whether he was run over by the tractor or fell from it, but did say she thought it was time to get rid of the machine.
