PROVINCETOWN, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say a man has drowned in a remote area of the Cape Cod National Seashore in Provincetown.

Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe identified the victim of Sunday’s drowning as 26-year-old Kenneth Seum, of Anaheim, California. No criminal activity is suspected.

The Cape Cod Times reports that rescuers were called to the beach at about 1:30 p.m. after police received several 911 calls about a swimmer in distress near the historic dune shacks.

Bystanders initiated CPR until park officials and paramedics got there. The Coast Guard was also called-in, but the man had been pulled ashore by the time it arrived.
