An 81-year-old man died after being found in a small pond at his rural Weston home Thursday night.
Eugene Kros was found by his wife, who called 911 at 6 p.m. Kros was flown by medical helicopter to the Wahoo hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Saunders County Sheriff Kevin Stukenholtz said he didn't know if a medical situation or drowning caused the death. The pond was about 2 feet deep, he added, and Kros was found in the water.
Foul play is not suspected, Stukenholtz said.
