McALESTER, Okla. (AP) - Police in McAlester say a man has died after being found unconscious in a hotel swimming pool.

Sgt. Chris Morris told the McAlester News-Capital (https://bit.ly/1KaWvgy) that 49-year-old Phillip Nickerson was found in the pool at a Best Western Hotel on Thursday and was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Morris said Nickerson was originally from Krebs, but it wasn’t clear where he was currently living and that he was a registered guest of the hotel.

The body has been sent to the state medical examiner’s office to determine the cause of death.
