A woman in her 50s drowned in her bathtub Monday morning in Lake Forest, a fire captain said.
A friend found the woman in the tub about 10 a.m. and summoned paramedics to her home in the 23300 block of Ridge Route Drive, Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Steve Concialdi said.
The woman was later pronounced dead in the emergency room at Saddleback Memorial Medical Center in Laguna Hills, Concialdi said.
It was the sixth drowning call to which the county fire department has responded so far this year, with five of them involving fatalities, Concialdi said. In three of the five cases, the victims were older than 50, he said.
