    Police say a North Texas man drowned while trying to rescue a calf that had fallen into a pond.

    Coyote Renner, 29, was working ranchland in Cleburne Wednesday when he saw a calf fall into a stock tank, Cleburne Fire Chief Keith Scarbrough told the Cleburne Times-Review.

    Scarbrough says the tank is a small pond used for watering livestock that tends to be muddier than a typical lake.

    Scarbrough says the muddy waters could've been a factor in the drowning of Renner, who went by the nickname Cody.

    He says his clothing could've contributed to fatigue.

    Scarbrough says the calf survived.
