SOUTH PASADENA, Fla. – Pinellas County authorities say a man apparently drowned in a hot tub after spending the day drinking and watching football.
The sheriff's office identified the man Monday as 48-year-old Charles Collins Higgins of Treasure Island. A sheriff's office report says he was found floating face-down in the hot tub late Sunday night at a home in South Pasadena, about six miles east of St. Petersburg.
Deputies say he was a guest of the home's three residents and had spent the day watching football and drinking. Higgins was alone in the hot tub for about half an hour before he was found dead.
Paramedics rushed him to Palms of Pasadena Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
No further information was released early Monday morning.
