INDIANAPOLIS - A man is dead after drowning in a pond late Sunday night in an apartment complex on the west side of Indianapolis in Speedway.
The Speedway Fire Department (SFD) said just after 11 p.m. Sunday, several people called 911 to report cries for help coming from one of two ponds within Eagle Creek Court Apartments (see map below for location). Officials said emergency crews were better able to pinpoint their search thanks to three different witnesses providing information to dispatchers.
Speedway authorities said emergency crews used sonar to search the waters of the northernmost pond in the complex and found nothing. They then put a boat in the water, searching the surface, but still found nothing.
Then, a Pike Township diver began a search, and found the victim's body.
The man was said to be in his mid to late-30s, but investigators have yet to release any more information on his identity or how he ended up in the water. The man's body was found 10 feet from the shore, in water 10 feet deep.
The rescue efforts were a joint operation between SFD, Speedway police and the Pike Township Fire Department.
