OKC Fire: One Found Dead In NW OKC Pond

Posted: Updated:

One person was found dead Wednesday night in a pond in northwest Oklahoma City, firefighters said.

Fire crews were called shortly after 7 p.m. in reference to a possible drowning to the 3800 block of W Memorial Road.

The victim was taken out of a water retention area near two hotels.

It is suspected that the person was in the water for more than 45 minutes, a fire department spokesman said. 

A group of homeless people told police they were swimming in the area when one of men strayed away from the group. 

The group found the man unresponsive a short time later, pulled him out of the water, called 911 and began CPR on the man. 

The state medical examiner will determine the man's cause of death.
