The dead man found floating in the swimming pool of a Monroe County health club Wednesday has been identified as 64-year-old Scott Ewing of Pocono Township by the county coroner's office.

An autopsy has been performed on the victim, but the cause of death won't be determined until the coroner's office receives results of a study of organ tissue samples taken from the body.

A spokesman for the coroner's office said it usually takes about three weeks to get those results.


Ewing died while exercising in the pool at Elevations Health Club Wednesday morning. Someone saw him floating, not moving, in the shallow end of the pool and screamed for help.
