A Derwood man was found dead in his back yard swimming pool, police said.
About 3:15 p.m. Sunday, emergency workers went to the home in the 7000 block of Needwood Road. Mojtaba Tehrani Kia, 59, had been doing yard work in his back yard for several hours, and a family member looked out a window and saw him lifeless in the pool.
Kia was wearing swim trunks, and his sandals and towels were next to the pool, Montgomery County police said. He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Authorities were not suspecting foul play; the medical examiner's office will determine Kia's cause of death.
