A 68-year-old DeBary woman has died after she was found unresponsive in the community pool at the Integra 289 Exchange apartment complex.

Deputies, fire and EMS responded to 115 Integra Reserve Lane around 10:30 a.m. Thursday after a witness on a nearby balcony spotted what appeared to be a person floating in the pool. When he went to investigate, he pulled the victim out of the water and began CPR until rescue arrived on scene.
