LITTLE RIVER, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say the drowning of a 63-year-old man in an Horry County pond appears to be an accident.

Rescuers pulled Michel Melanson from the water behind a bar and restaurant in Little River around 9:30 a.m. Saturday.

Horry County Coroner Robert Edge says Melanson was seen at the edge of the pond several hours before he died.

Edge says an autopsy determined Melanson drowned.

The coroner says Melanson was from Canada and had been staying at a nearby gold club for several months with friends.
