Man drowns when wheelchair falls into pool

Officials in Florida say a 68-year-old man drowned on New Year's Eve when his wheelchair fell into a backyard swimming pool.

Sheriff's deputies report that Terry Chambers was unresponsive when he was found in the water on Monday afternoon at about 4:30 p.m.

His 64-year-old wife Judy Burns and 61-year-old caretaker Steve Miller were at the Palm Harbor home at the time, but authorities say they were unable to rescue him.

Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies say paramedics attempted multiple life-saving efforts, but Chambers died.

Sheriff's officials said they don't consider the death to be suspicious but an investigation continues.
