      Elderly Clark County woman drowns in pond

      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.

      The Clark County coroner pronounced Martin dead at the scene around 1 p.m. Wednesday.

      Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Wilson Funeral Home in Kahoka.
