Authorities are trying to unravel what they say was the accidental drowning of a father, and his son in Ventura County.
Ventura County Sheriff’s Deputies were called to the 3700 block of Howe Road in Piru around 1:30 Saturday afternoon. Two people found 79 year old Raymond Alvarez, and 37 year old Richard Alvarez in a pool.
They started CPR, but the father was pronounced dead at the scene, and the son was taken by helicopter to a Thousand Oaks hospital, where he later died.
Deputies say the two men died in a chain of events as they were trying to repair the pool mechanism.
