Man dies after stumbling into lake while fishing

NEW PORT RICHEY, Florida (AP) -- A 63-year-old man died after falling into a lake while fishing.


Officials say the accident happened late Monday night as Gavin Grace was fishing behind his girlfriend's house in New Port Richey.


According to Pasco County deputies, 71-year-old Sandra Spears went outside about 11:30 p.m. to tell Grace his sister was on the phone. She told deputies Grace stumbled, then fell into the lake.


Spears told deputies Grace began swimming toward the middle of the lake, then disappeared. She jumped into the water and pulled him to shore. He was pronounced dead at the scene.


Pasco County Sheriff Kevin Doll says the death appears to be accidental.
