Intoxicated Man on Indian Rocks Beach Drowns

INDIAN ROCKS BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office report says a ‘very’ drunk man died after walking off a dock and into the water

The man has been identified as 36-year-old Louis Serrano from Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The report says Serrano was seen walking off the boardwalk area behind a hotel on Indian Rocks Beach early Sunday morning. He was described as ‘very intoxicated.’ As he approached a turn in the dock, he instead continued walking straight ahead and walked off the dock into the water.

Fire rescue workers pulled his fully clothed body from the water just after 6 a.m.

Serrano was in the Amy and was stationed at Colorado’s Fort Carson. He was in town for a week of training.

His next of kin has been notified.
