SKIATOOK, Okla. (AP) _ A Kellyville man is the fifth drowning victim in Oklahoma over the Memorial Day weekend.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 30-year-old John Paul Davis died Sunday at Lake Skiatook northeast of Tulsa. Officials say Davis was swinging from a cliff on a rope when he attempted a backflip and struck his head twice on rocks.
He was under water for about 10 minutes before his brother and brother-in-law pulled him out of the water. He was pronounced dead around 9 PM Sunday night.
An official cause of death will be determined by the medical examiner's office.
Davis was the second of two drowning deaths reported Sunday.
Three others drowned Saturday in separate incidents.
