Police say two women bringing young children to an Ohio park found the body of man hanging from playground equipment.

Police Capt. Rick Myers in Stow, about 25 miles southeast of Cleveland, says it's fortunate the children were under 2 and that no other youngsters were in the park Thursday afternoon.

He says the sight could have been traumatic for older children.

Myers says the 49-year-old man was hanging by knotted clothes. The medical examiner will determine the cause of death.
