SUN CITY, Ariz. - A Sun City man is dead after driving his car through his house and into the pool in the backyard.

A neighbor jumped in the pool to help before emergency crews arrived on scene and got George Hartman, 93, out of the water.

Hartman had to be extricated from the car. He was flown to an area hospital where, according to a detective, he died.

No word on what led up to the accident that happened around 5:30 p.m. at his home near 99th Avenue and Union Hills Drive.

A neighbor and good friend said she saw Hartman earlier in the day and he was in good spirits. She said Hartman was supposed to move out of the house and into a nursing home on Tuesday.
