A man was pronounced dead after his body was pulled from the Mississippi River in Garyville. Deputies say he fell from a vessel and into the river.

The incident happened around 9 p.m. Thursday near a docking area in Garyville, Louisiana.

Crewmembers rescued an unconscious man and began CPR until emergency responders could arrive. Efforts to revive the man were not successful, according to the St. John the Baptist Sheriff's Office.

The coroner pronounced him dead at the scene.

The supervisor of the vessel tells authorizes that no one on his vessel witnessed the man fall overboard. A siren was activated when crewmembers from another vessel saw the man in the water.
