A man believed to be 42 years old drowned early Friday on the Isle of Palms, Mayor Dick Cronin has confirmed.
The fire department got a call that a man had been pulled from the water at 3:22 a.m. They arrived to find his brother trying to revive him, Cronin said. Emergency personnel administered CPR on the beach and on the way to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Reports from the scene said the man was found near Ocean Boulevard and Coconut Joe's.
The Charleston County Coroner's Office will release his identity.
