Woman found floating in swimming pool dies

A Perrysburg Township woman died yesterday about five hours after her husband pulled her out of the pool at their home at 29275 Huffard Rd., authorities said.

JoAnn Shafer, 57, was pronounced dead at 4:50 p.m. at St. Luke's Hospital, Dr. Diane Barnett, a Lucas County deputy coroner, said.

Ms. Shafer's husband found his wife floating in the pool face-up but unresponsive shortly before midnight. It was unclear last night how she got in the pool.

Perrysburg Township police yesterday released no information about the incident.
