JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A man found unresponsive in a condominium swimming pool Monday evening was later revived, but is recovering from serious injuries, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

Investigators said the man is in his late 60s and was found by the office complex manager around 6:00 p.m. at the Wolf Creek Condominiums. The manager then called for help.

When emergency crews got to the scene, they transported the man to Mayo Clinic and believed the man had died. But once they got to the hospital, doctors were able to revive the man.

Investigators said the man appeared to have medical problems.

"He does have some health issues that were probably related to why he could not get out of the pool or swim correctly," Sgt. Craig Waldrup with JSO said.

The man is said to be married and investigators are working to notify his wife. Until she is reached, his name will not be released.
