An 51-year-old Benson man died early Monday morning in Benson, where the Cache County Sheriff's Office reports he was found face-down in a 2-foot irrigation pipe.

According to Sheriff Chad Jensen, Russell A. Larsen was found by a neighbor, who called 911 at about 7:45 a.m. and pulled the man from the pipe. Deputies do not know how long the man had been down, he said.

Deputies attempted CPR, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Jensen said while Larsen was found in a water source, the actual cause of death will not be known until the autopsy has been completed.
