Man found unconscious in shallow water at North Redington Beach

NORTH REDINGTON BEACH — Pinellas County sheriff's deputies are asking the public to help identify an unconscious man found floating in shallow water about 11 a.m. today behind The Tides condo complex.

The man was on life support at Largo Medical Center on Wednesday afternoon, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.

Bystanders started CPR on the man before he was taken to the Indian Rocks campus of Largo Medical Center (formerly Suncoast Hospital). He was later transferred to Largo Medical's main campus on 14th Street SW.

Deputies said the man is a white male, about 5-foot-6 and around 150 pounds, with blue eyes and thinning brown hair. He was wearing dark blue drawstring shorts and no shirt.

The Sheriff's Office said the man did not have any identification on him and they could not find any of his personal items, like shoes or a wallet, on the beach.

He was found floating face-down in the Gulf of Mexico a little less than 20 yards from shore, behind the condos at 16800 Gulf Blvd.

Note: This article has been updated to reflect that the unidentified man is on life support and has not died, as previously reported by the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.
