LINCOLNVILLE, Maine (AP) — Police in Maine say a 32-year-old man drowned after falling into a pond while fishing.

The Waldo County Sheriff’s Office says the body of Alan Bernardo of Hope was found in Norton Pond in Lincolnville on Friday. The sheriff’s office says an initial investigation shows Bernardo was fishing from a structure along the roadside when he fell.

Police say the medical examiner will make a final determination about cause of death. They say Bernardo’s death was first reported by a passing motorist at 10:45 a.m. on Friday when the driver saw Bernardo’s body floating in the water.

Lincolnville is a coastal town of about 2,100 just north of Camden.
