A 76-year-old man found face down in a pool at a house on Tucson’s northeast side died this evening, authorities said.
The man was identified as Keith Bauman, said Deputy Dawn Barkman, a Pima County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman.
Paramedics from the Rural/Metro Fire Department responded to the house in the 5900 block of North Sabino Canyon Road shortly before 6:30 p.m. and pulled Bauman out of the pool, authorities said.
Paramedics were unable to resuscitate him, said Rural/Metro Capt. Grant Cesarek.
The Pima County Sheriff’s Department took over the investigation.
A family member who telephoned 911 reported the incident as a drowning, but the cause of death has yet to be determined by the Pima County Medical Examiner’s Office, said Cesarek.
