A grim find was made in the neighborhood of Encino, Los Angeles, where a man's body was discovered motionless in a residential pool, as reported on Monday afternoon. The Los Angeles Fire Department received a distress call at about 2:38 p.m. and rushed to the scene on Haskell Avenue near Saticoy Street. What they encountered was a scene of undisturbed water with a life gone beneath its surface. The authorities have yet to disclose further details of the deceased, such as age or identity, according to NBC Los Angeles.

Upon arrival, the responders assessed the situation and pronounced the man deceased without a sign of life's breath. The body had languished in the void of the pool for an unconfirmed duration. As the CBS Los Angeles news details, the property situated on the 4800 block of Haskell Avenue became the center of an unexpected tragedy that afternoon.

Local police are now stringing together the narrative of events leading up to the discovery, with initial reports indicating a family member found the male relative and subsequently called 911.
