An 80-year-old man drowned in his backyard pool in Kingwood. It happened Sunday morning at a home on Running Springs near Laurel Hill Drive. The man's wife told police her husband had recent heart problems.

"He was in the pool cleaning the pool. He may have had some kind of heart attack maybe," said Russell Ruth of the Houston Police Department.

The medical examiner will determine the official cause of death. The man's identity has not been released.
