ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Deputies say a 70-year-old man likely drowned after tripping over a nigh embankment and falling into a retention pond.
The man’s son found him face down in the pond near his home early Monday.
Officials say the son noticed his father missing and went searching for him. Firefighters pulled him from the water and pronounced him dead.
Investigators say no foul play is suspected. The man’s name hasn’t been released.
Orlando’s WESH TV (http://bit.ly/1hqngSj ) reports the man had dementia and possibly suffered from Alzheimer’s disease.
No further details have been released.
