Man Drowns In Wake County

Posted June 17, 2001

— Wake County officials are investigating a late-night drowning which occurred Saturday, but they do not think it was related to the stormy weather the Triangle experienced.

Emergency management says that Carlos Rodriguez was pulled from a pond off Bill Love Road, which is in southern Wake County, just outside of Willow Spring.

Police say Rodriguez was fishing with five other people and decided to take a swim to cool off, only to drown instead.
