The Horry County Coroner’s Office said one person died in an early morning drowning at a Myrtle Beach hotel Tuesday.
The drowning was reported about 4 a.m. at the Patricia Grand hotel, at 2710 N. Ocean Blvd., said Lt. Christian Sliker with Myrtle Beach Fire Rescue.
Deputy coroner Tamara Willard confirmed the coroner’s office responded to the hotel.
A Myrtle Beach police report states a witness reported the drowning after walking out on her balcony and seeing a person face down in the hot tub. Hotel security started CPR on the victim before police arrived, the report states.
The victim is listed in the report as a 57-year-old woman.
