68-year-old man found dead in fountain at Heritage Hills

YORK COUNTY, Pa. — A 68-year-old man was found dead Wednesday in a fountain at Heritage Hills, according to the York County Coroner’s Office.

Police were called to the golf resort on Mount Rose Avenue around 9 a.m. for a reported cardiac arrest and a man found in water, the coroner’s office says.

Emergency personnel arrived on scene and found George Vlahos, of Montgomery County, beyond help. He was pronounced dead just before 9:30 a.m.

Police determined that Vlahos had been staying at the golf resort with a group of people as part of a golf outing. Police say Vlahos was at Knickers Pub Tuesday evening and later in the night, he fell into the fountain, striking his head.

Vlahos’ death is suspected to be accidental. No foul play was suspected, the coroner’s office adds. An autopsy will not be performed. The case is pending the toxicology results.

Heritage Hill issued this statement:

“As area news outlets have already reported, a male guest in his early 60s was found deceased at our resort this morning after being reported missing by fellow members of his golf party. Our entire team shares the sadness of this loss, and we extend our deepest condolences to his family members and friends.
