A 42-year-old man who was unresponsive after he was pulled from the wave pool at BSR the night of July Fourth has died, officials said.

The man, identified as Christopher Hayes, died Saturday evening after an apparent drowning, McLennan County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy David Kilcrease said.

Deputies responded to the Axtell-area park at about 10 p.m. Thursday, and Hayes was taken to Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center, where he was placed on life support.
