Man drowns on Clearwater Beach

CLEARWATER — Authorities are investigating a drowning Tuesday afternoon on Clearwater Beach near the Palm Pavillion.

The victim, a 36-year-old man, was taken to Morton Plant Hospital with life-threatening injuries, said Elizabeth Watts, the city's public safety spokeswoman. He later died.

No suspicious circumstances or foul play are suspected, Watts said.

Police and fire got the call at 4:38 p.m. Other beachgoers noticed the unresponsive man and pulled him to shore and began CPR until authorities arrived, Watts said.

Police didn't release the man's name Tuesday night.
