SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) - A 29-year-old man has died after drowning in a pond at a park in the Hamptons.

Southampton Town Police say Sunday that Angel De Santiago Martinez, of New Jersey, was pulled from the water at Emma Rose Elliston Park in Southampton Saturday afternoon.

Search-and-rescue teams and fire department divers pulled his body from the water more than an hour later.

Police say they are continuing to investigate. The Suffolk County medical examiner will determine his cause of death.
