    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.

    The death toll from Typhoon Hagibis climbed to 53 on Tuesday, days after it tore through Japan and left hundreds of thousands of homes wrecked, flooded or out of power. Hagibis caused more than 200 rivers to overflow when it hit the island nation on Saturday.

    The fire chief says Renner was still wearing jeans and boots when his body was removed from the about 7-feet deep area of the pond.

    He says his clothing could've contributed to fatigue.

    Scarbrough says the calf survived.
