Swanton man found floating in Sevierville pool, dies

SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. Police in Sevierville say an Ohio man has died after being found floating in a Smoky Mountains resort swimming pool.

A spokesman for the city of Sevierville (suh-VEER -vihl) said 65-year-old Ronald Drocy of Swanton, Ohio, had been playing in the pool at Wyndham Smoky Mountains with his granddaughter. He was found floating about 9:30 p.m. Saturday and was pronounced dead at Fort Sanders Medical Center in nearby Knoxville.

The Knoxville News Sentinel quoted city spokesman Bob Stahlke as saying firefighters administered CPR when Drocy was pulled from the pool. He was unsure whether an autopsy would be performed.
