The Washington Post Sunday - - COMMUTER -

A 71-year-old man who went out­side to clean his pool in La Plata, fell in and drowned Fri­day night, of­fi­cials said.

It’s un­clear how he fell, but his wife found him in the pool face down and called 911 at about 8:20 p.m., said Diane Richard­son, a Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice spokes­woman.

He was pro­nounced dead on the scene in the 5600 block of Mount Carmel Road, Richard­son said. She said no foul play was sus­pected. An au­topsy is to be con­ducted.
