A 42-year-old man has died after drowning on the Fourth of July at the BSR Cable Park and Surf Resort in Waco, Texas. According to the Waco Tribune, the victim Christopher Hayes was attending a Fourth of July party at the surf beach when the incident occurred. He was found unresponsive but still breathing in the water and was rushed to a nearby hospital. After showing no signs of improvement, Hayes passed away after being taken off life support by his family.
There’s little information regarding the exact cause of his death, but the local sheriff described it as an “apparent drowning”. Hayes death follows a string of controversy that ensued last year after a New Jersey surfer contracted a brain-eating amoeba from the facility and died. In regards to the recent incident, BSR has not released a statement.

Marine biologists seem to keep scoring the jackpot with deep water cameras. OceanX recently got some uncomfortably close footage of a bluntnose six-gill shark while doing research in a submarine. Thankfully, no sharks were swallowed whole by a giant fish in this video—yeah we’re talking about you grouper fish, you sneaky bastard. RELATED: Ocean Ramsey Swims with Massive Great White Shark
