YARMOUTH, Mass. (AP) - Authorities say an elderly man is dead after he was found in a motel swimming pool in Cape Cod.

Crews arrived at the Yarmouth motel just before 2 p.m. Sunday and found the manager performing CPR on 82-year-old James Murphy.

Police say a guest had seen Murphy at the bottom of the pool and informed the manager.

Firefighters were unable to revive Murphy. The South Dennis man was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The initial investigation indicates Murphy had been swimming alone in the pool.

Police are investigating.
