OGDEN -- A 68-year-old man from Salt Lake City died Tuesday morning, possibly from drowning, at an area known as the Hot Pots.
The man was visiting the hot pots with friends also from the Salt Lake area, the Weber County Sheriff's Office said in a news release.
The name of the victim was not released, pending notification of family.
The victim was in one pool and his friends were in another pool a short distance away.
The group had been in the pools a little more than an hour when one of the victim's friends went to check on him and found him face down in the pool, the sheriff's department said.
The friend turned the unresponsive man face up and pulled him to the side of the pool and a passerby called 911. CPR was performed by Weber County Sheriff's Office deputies and Ogden firefighters at the scene. The victim was transported to McKay-Dee Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The cause of death remains unknown, pending autopsy. The incident is under investigation by Weber County Sheriff's Office.
The death is the second at the hot pots in the last year. In August, the body of 61-year-old Reynold Steggell, who was from the Ogden area, was found at the hot pots.
The hot pots, which are popular with the public, are fed by a hose from a concrete collection system, according to the Utah Outdoor Activities website at www.utahoutdooractivities.com.
