WATERTOWN, Conn. (AP) - Authorities in western Connecticut have identified a man found dead inside a well after an apparent accident.

Watertown police say the body of 58-year-old James McAdam was found in the well on his property by his brother Thursday morning. He was found upside down about five feet down in the 20-foot well.

McAdam’s brother went to check on him and their mother, who lived with McAdam, after not hearing from them for several days.

Authorities also found McAdam’s 83-year-old mother lying on the kitchen floor of their home after an apparent fall. She didn’t appear to be seriously hurt but was taken to a hospital.

The medical examiner’s office hasn’t yet ruled how McAdam died.

Police believe he was working on the well and fell in by accident.
