The man was found unresponsive. The sheriff’s office says deputies immediately called for Emergency Medical Services while attempting to cool and revive the man.
They found no pulse and began CPR until Falkville Fire and Rescue and Lifeguard Ambulance teams arrived. The man was taken to Cullman Regional, where he passed away.
