Lowndes County-- A Lowndes County man who drowned Monday has been identified.

Monday afternoon, seventy-four-year-old Donald O'Quinn was clearing a patch of grass to access a pond near the 4000 block of Val Del Rd.

The property owner came by to check on O'Quinn and noticed he was missing. She began to look for him but only found his hat floating in the water, and called 911.

"Knowing Don and the condition he was in, I just feel like there's some other extenuating medical circumstance," said Sheriff Ashley Paulk.

Deputies and fire/rescue personnel responded and found him in the water. They suspect heat or heart attack may have played a role in his death.

Donald O'Quinn was a retired barber in Valdosta.
