SITKA, Alaska (AP) - An autopsy is being conducted on a man who drowned in the ANB Harbor in Sitka.

The Daily Sitka Sentinel reports (https://is.gd/r7uhKh) 41-year-old Richard T. Hatten was unresponsive when he was pulled from the water last Thursday. Friends found him in the water near the dock and pulled him out.

Efforts to revive him were unsuccessful. Police say he was in the water for about an hour before his body was found. He had been staying on a boat in the harbor.

Surveillance video at the harbor shows Hatten leaving the harbor and returning later. Police Lt. Jeff Ankerfelt says the video shows Hatten appearing unsteady on his feel before falling off the dock.
