An elderly northeast Missouri woman died after drowning in a pond at her home.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol said Hazel Martin, 92, of Wyaconda drowned Wednesday afternoon at her home two miles south of Wyaconda.
Martin was using a bucket to get water for her flowers when she fell head first into the pond and couldn't get herself out.
A neighbor unsuccessfully tried to revive Martin using CPR.
