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.

Some news reports are calling it a freak accident, but the same thing happened to a woman in August. As with the previous death, it's not clear what caused Castillo to fall and what the actual cause of death was.
