TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa police say a body was discovered at a north Tulsa playground near Pine Street and Lewis Avenue Monday morning.

Officers say that a person may have been drinking at some point, fell asleep at the pavilion located within Springdale Playground.

"He was not prepared for the weather we had last night," says TPD Captain Richard Meulenberg. "It got just below freezing overnight, or close to freezing. It's not an environment that's survivable if you're not prepared to stay out here."

Police say the medical examiner will have to determine if the cold weather did actually play a role in his death.

The family of the victim has been notified.
