(Scroll down for video) A woman fled in panic after stepping on a dead body floating in a hot tub at her favorite spa, police in New York said.
The New York Police Department said that 84-year-old Hock Ma of Queens, died after being found submerged in the hot tub at the luxury spa by another user.
Ma of Forest Hills, died on Sunday night, after being pulled from the water of the hot tub at Spa Castle in College Point. An autopsy showed that Ma died of hypertension and cardiovascular disease.
According to witnesses at the scene, a young woman who had gone to the hot tub, ran around screaming for help, saying that there was an unresponsive man in the water.
She said that she walked into the water and felt something at her feet. Ma was pulled out of the water and employees administered CPR until rescuers arrived.
Ma was transported to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Spa Castle has another location in Manhattan, and one in Texas.
