Emergency personnel were called to 211 Dent St. in Washington Township just before 5 p.m. Wednesday for a report of a woman pulled from a pool and unresponsive.

The home, owned by John E. and Lynn C. Baron, according to the Fayette County Assessment Office, has a large in-ground pool in the backyard.

The call came into dispatchers at 4:50 p.m., and the Washington Township Fire Company was the first to respond, police said.

The victim, whose identity has not been released, was transported to Monongahela Valley Hospital in Carroll Township by the Rostraver-West Newton Emergency Medical Service, Washington Township police said.

Police, who would only confirm that an adult female was pulled from the water, remained on scene taking photographs, as did personnel from another Rostraver-West Newton EMS unit.

Vehicle in pond

Authorities reportedly were attempting to recover the body of an older man Friday afternoon from a pond on property along the Fallowfield Township-Somerset Township line.

The man was apparently inside a Bobcat construction vehicle, which was being pulled from the pond.

The site was located about a mile from the intersection of state routes 136 and 917 in Fallowfield Township.

The man's family rushed to the scene beginning shortly after 5 p.m. Wednesday.

State police from the Washington Barracks and members of the state police Forensic Service Unit were on the scene.

Fallowfield Township and Valley Inn firefighters and Fort Cherry Ambulance personnel responded.

No further information was available Wednesday.
