Ocean Shores surf fisherman died of heart problem
OCEAN SHORES (AP) — The Grays Harbor County coroner’s office says the Federal Way surf fisherman who died near Ocean Shores probably died of a heart rhythm problem that could have been triggered by cold water.
KBKW reports the autopsy on 65-year-old Antonio Inocencio of Federal Way indicated cardiac arrhythmia, which has been associated with cold-water immersion deaths.
Inocencio was fishing alone. He was apparently knocked down by a wave and pulled under when his waders filled with water. His body was found Sunday by a beachcomber.
