Northern Indiana authorities say a man found dead beneath a tractor may have been stricken with a medical condition before he fell beneath the machine.

Lake County coroner's office spokesman PJ Adams tells The Times of Munster that 59-year-old Steven Seckendorf was found dead Friday night under a tractor outside his Calumet Township home.

Adams said Saturday that no foul play is suspected, but an autopsy is being performed to determine whether Seckendorf died of natural causes prior to falling under the tractor.

Adams was found pinned under the tractor with lacerations to one of his legs.
