GREENVILLE, S.C. — A man has been found dead in a swimming pool at a South Carolina retirement home.

The Greenville County Coroner’s Office told local media that 87-year-old Marion Hare of Greenville was found face down in the water at the home Monday afternoon.

Deputy Coroner Kent Dill said two people found Hare in the pool and pulled him and tried to administer CPR but were unsuccessful.

Dill said Hare had told family members he was going to the exercise room and then to the pool.

The coroner’s office and Greenville police are investigating.

An autopsy was planned Tuesday.
