    For the second time this summer, a person has died after being found in a pond at Watters Creek Golf Course in Plano.

    At about 8:20 a.m. Monday, a member of the course's lawn crew somehow became pinned in the pond, underneath a riding lawn mower, police said.

    According to Plano police, other maintenance workers said the man hadn't been seen for about 30 minutes before he was found in the pond.

    The man, whose name has not yet been released, was transported to The Medical Center of Plano, where he was pronounced dead.

    In June, homeowners near the course reporting hearing a man yelling for help.  A short time later, police were seen pulling a man from the water and performing CPR.  He was transported to The Medical Center of Plano where he was also pronounced dead.  In that case, officials have not said what prompted the man to enter the pond.

    Investigators looking into the June drowning will also be in charge of the investigation into the second drowning, police said.
