HURRICANE, Utah — Officials say a 71-year-old Nevada man drowned at Utah’s Sand Hollow State Park.

Utah State Parks public information officer Eugene Swalberg says witnesses pulled the man from the water and performed CPR until medical responders arrived and performed “advanced life support measures.”

Swalberg says efforts to resuscitate the man were unsuccessful.
