The body of a man was found floating in the Kiddie Pool area of the beach inside St. Andrew State Park at mid afternoon Monday.
Bystander pulled the body of 61-year-old Roger Kelly to shore and administered CPR but was unsuccessful.
Kelly was found in chest-deep water while yellow flags were posted on the beach. He was visiting Panama City Beach with his family from Georgia.
The medical examiner’s office will determine the exact cause of his death.
