An Oro Valley man drowned in a residential swimming pool Thursday morning, authorities said.
James Bell, 79, was pulled out of a back yard swimming pool about 10 a.m. by an Oro Valley police officer who responded to a 911 call in the 11000 block of North Poinsettia Drive, said Lt. Kara Riley, a spokeswoman for the Oro Valley Police Department.
The neighborhood is near North La Cañada Drive and West Naranja Drive.
The officer performed CPR on Bell before Golder Ranch Fire District paramedics arrived, but Bell was not revived, authorities said.
It was not known how long Bell was in the pool before he was found, Riley said.
