Another Drowning In South Mississippi

There has been another drowning on the Coast.

Just after six this morning in Long Beach, the body of a man was found a few yards east of the Jim Simpson pier. He has been identified as 54-year old Martin Slaton of Long Beach. An autopsy is being done to determine the exact cause of the man's death.

This is the third apparent drowning in South Mississippi this week. Yesterday a woman's body was discovered on the beach in Biloxi, and a three year old girl drowned Monday in the Pearl River.
