A man is dead and his son remains hospitalized after being injured in a pool where electricity was detected.

Carl L. McGrady, 65, died as a result of injuries he sustained in the pool at his Florence home Friday, Sgt. Brad Holmes said in a news release this morning.

The man's son, Lucas, remained hospitalized this morning for treatment of injuries he sustained while trying to rescue his father.

Witnesses told police a man was found unresponsive in the pool on the 100 block of Augusta Street before 1 p.m. and his son jumped in attempting to save him. The son described being "shocked" while in the pool, Holmes said at the time of the incident.

Police later confirmed an electric current was running through the pool, and the case remains under investigation by the city's electric and fire departments.

Carl McGrady's wife, Pam, also was injured while helping her son remove her husband from the pool, Holmes said. Pam McGrady was treated at released from Eliza Coffee Memorial Hospital, police said.

"There does not appear to be any foul play in this incident," Holmes said.

Additional details weren't immediately available.
