An unresponsive man was pulled Friday afternoon from a canal off Truxtun Avenue. He was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

The man was spotted by city workers, who used a pole to keep him in place until emergency crews could arrive.

Police Sgt. Kevin Findley said they're trying to figure out where, when and how the man got into the canal.

Police do not suspect that foul play was involved in this incident.
