Man Found Dead In Mission Beach Hotel Jacuzzi

Posted: Updated:

A young man was found dead in a hot tub at a Mission Beach hotel today following a night of partying in celebration of his 21st birthday, authorities reported.

Several friends who were staying with the man at Paradise Point Resort on Vacation Road found him floating face-down in the spa about 5:30 a.m., according to San Diego police.

Medics tried in vain to revive the man before pronouncing him dead at the scene. His name was withheld pending notification of his next of kin.

"He and three of his friends came here and rented a room," SDPD Lt. Karen Tenney told reporters. "And they celebrated by drinking some alcohol."

The group went into the hot tub in the early morning and soaked for a time before three of them went back to their room.

"And they went back to check on him, and they found him floating in the Jacuzzi," the lieutenant said.

There were some scrapes on the dead man's face, but it was unclear if the injuries had anything to do with his death, according to Tenney. An autopsy was pending.
