GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A University of Florida physics professor died after being found unconscious in a campus bathroom.

The Gainesville Sun (https://bit.ly/1nZx23f) reports that 68-year-old Steven Detweiler was found in a locked bathroom at a campus recreation center on Monday.

Campus police say Detweiler, a marathon runner, had been running that morning before his collapse. Police say a fitness watch he was wearing showed he’d begun running at 5:30 a.m.

Officers administered CPR, and Detweiler was later pronounced dead at a hospital. Police say the probable cause of death was cardiac arrest.

Detweiler’s faculty website said his research focused on black holes and gravitational waves.
