A 74 year old Ira Township man drowned yesterday afternoon in a pond on his property. According to St. Clair County Sheriff Tim Donnellon, the man went out of the house in the 6700 block of Starville Road this morning. When he didn’t come in for lunch, his wife went looking for him and eventually went to a neighbor’s house to ask for some help. The neighbor located the man floating in the pond on the deceased man’s property shortly after 1:00 p.m. The neighbor was able to pull the man from the pond. At this point it is unknown why the man was around the water. No signs of foul play were found. The man was pronounced dead at the scene just after 1:30 p.m. Ira Township Fire and Rescue and Tri Hospital EMS assisted at the scene of the incident.
