EMS: Man falls into water, dies at sports park

A man thought to be in his 60s died after possibly drowning at Quest ATX, a sports park in southeastern Travis County, on Tuesday afternoon, Austin-Travis County EMS officials said.

Medics responded to the park at 10815 FM 1625 around 2:40 p.m., EMS officials said.

Kristen Dark, a spokeswoman with the Travis County sheriff’s office, said three contractors were working around the floating recreation area when one of them slumped over and went in the water. It is unknown why the man fell, Dark said.

The other two workers partially pulled him out of the water and one of them performed CPR on the victim, but he was pronounced dead about 3:19 p.m., Dark said.

There was no indication of foul play, Dark said.

The man who performed CPR on the victim was later taken to Seton Medical Center Hays in Kyle with medical complaints, according to EMS Capt. Darren Noak.
