A man has died after being pulled from a backyard pool in Hamilton, police say.
Authorities said a 30-year-old man was found without vital signs at a home on Proctor Boulevard around 9 p.m. on Monday.
Police said the homeowner performed CPR on the man before he was taken to hospital and pronounced dead.
The man’s drowning comes just days after a 33-year-old woman died in Lake Ontario trying to save her six-year-old son who was swept away from shore.
An 89-year-old man also drowned on Monday after being pulled from a pool in a Burlington apartment.
