March 16, 2012

An 84-year-old man drowned Thursday in the pool at his Hickory home.

Jack Leroy Hawn's wife found him dead in the pool at their Idlewood Acres home sometime after 2 p.m.

"The pool wasn't full, but the liner had captured quite a bit of water over the winter," said Capt. Joel Fish with the Catawba County Sheriff's Office.

Fish said Hawn's wife fell asleep, woke, went outside and found him dead.

Fish said Hawn had Alzheimer's disease and a history of medical problems.
