(IRA TOWNSHIP) -- St. Clair County Sheriff Tim Donnellon says a 74-year old Ira Township man drowned in a pond on his property Monday. Deputies say the victim left his home in the 6700 block of Starville Road in the morning. When he didn't return for lunch, his wife went looking for him and asked a neighbor for help. The neighbor spotted the man floating in the pond shortly after 1 p.m. and pulled him from the water. Deputies say it is still unknown why the man was around the water and there were no signs of foul play. Ira Township Fire and Rescue and Tri Hospital EMS personnel assisted at the scene.
