Services this week for Mo. triathlete who drowned
INNSBROOK, Mo. (AP) -- A funeral will be held Thursday for a Jefferson County man who drowned during a triathalon over the weekend.
Kevin Hunt, 28, was finishing up the 500-yard swim of the Ultramax triathlon. He was less than 50 feet from shore when he went under on Saturday at Aspen Lake at Innsbrook Resort.
About 100 triathletes formed a human chain and jumped into the water to search for Hunt, said Mark Livesay, racing director for Ultramax Events. People performed CPR on Hunt before getting him to shore, where an ambulance and doctors were waiting.
Hunt was pronounced dead at an area hospital.
Visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Kutis Funeral Home in Affton. A funeral is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday at Concord Baptist Church in Sappington.
