LANHAM, Md. (WUSA9) -- Prince George's County Fire Department said a lifeguard died Saturday afternoon after he was found in a swimming pool at an apartment complex in Lanham, Md.

The incident happened at an apartment complex located in the 5400 block of 85th Avenue, in Lanham, Md.

Authorities said despite best efforts of all involved, the man pulled from the pool has been pronounced dead.

It's not clear how the man ended up in the water or how he died.

Prince George's County fire department spokesman Mark Brady says the pool's management company tried to contact the lifeguard Saturday and sent someone to check on him when he did not respond. Brady says the lifeguard was wearing shoes when he was found. Officials believe he may have been cleaning the pool before it was to open for the day.
