Town 'N Country man drowns while fishing in pond

TOWN 'N COUNTRY — A 37-year-old man drowned late Tuesday while fishing in a Town 'N Country pond, authorities say.

Hoang T. Nguyen was in a canoe with a friend when both stood up to cast a net. The canoe capsized, said Gary Morse, a spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Luan M. Truong, 38, was able to swim to shore, but Nguyen wasn't, Morse said.

The commission is investigating the drowning, as it does with most boating-related deaths, Morse said.
