A 41-year-old man died after he fell into a pool while mowing the lawn yesterday afternoon.Jose Velasquez Castillo was doing yardwork at a home on a cul-de-sac in Anaheim, when he fell into the pool. He was taken to UC Irvine Medical Center, where was pronounced dead around 2pm, according to the Los Angeles Times.
