Jefferson County officials say a man drowned in his pool this weekend while trying to clear a clogged drain.

Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies were called out Saturday around 4 p.m. to the 8700 block of Lakeview Circle in the Woodhaven community to assist Palmerdale Fire and Rescue on a medical emergency call.

When deputies arrived, they found medics trying to resucitate 53-year-old David Spearman.

Spearman and two friends were working to clear a clogged drain in Spearman's swimming pool. Spearman was pushing a clearing tool through the drain while his friends waited at the pump.

Spearman's wife discovered her husband at the bottom of the pool not moving.

His friends pulled him from the pool and began CPR. Spearman was pronounced dead on the scene. Foul play is not suspected.
