Lincolnton Man Drowns In Pool

Lincoln County Sheriff's
Office Press Release

Lincoln County Sheriff's Adam District officers were dispatched Thursday afternoon (April 8th) to the 200 block of Laurel Ridge Drive, Lincolnton, where it appears a man died in an accidental drowning.

When deputies arrived on the scene Lincoln County EMS was providing medical attention to the 71-year-old man whose body was found at the bottom of the pool.

The wife of the victim told officers she last talked to her husband by phone around 1:00 and asked him if he had taken his pills which he advised that he had.  The medication was to help the victim with keeping his balance.  She told officers she arrived home around 3:00 and could not locate her husband.  She went to the back of the house and found him at the bottom of the pool.  He was transported to Atrium Health - Lincoln but did not survive.

The victim is identified as Luther Hester, 71, of Laurel Ridge Drive, Lincolnton.
