Man Found Dead In Hot Tub

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a man apparently drowned in a Jacksonville hotel’s hot tub.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office says officers were called to the La Quinta Inn & Suites just after 7 p.m. Sunday after a man in his 20s was found face down in the hot tub.

The Florida Times Union reports the man’s friend last saw him in the hot tub, which is located in an outdoor courtyard. The friend left the area for a few minutes and discovered the man unconscious in the tub when he returned.

Jacksonville police spokesman Jay Farhat says the man had no other signs of injury and the drowning appeared accidental. Farhat says “quite a bit” of drinking had apparently been going on.

The man’s identity hasn’t been released.
