Man drowns at Kansas apartment pool where he regularly swims


OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) – Authorities say a man has drowned at a suburban Kansas City apartment complex pool where he regularly swims and snorkels.

The Kansas City Star reports that first responders were called to the Quivira Falls apartment complex in Overland Park, Kansas, about 2:40 p.m. Tuesday after the 69-year-old man was spotted at the bottom of the pool. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police Officer John Lacy says the man regularly snorkeled around midday in the pool of the complex where he lived. The pool is 8 feet deep.

Lacy says officers don’t suspect foul play but an autopsy will be conducted to confirm the man’s cause of death. The man’s name wasn’t immediately released.
