Autopsy performed on Federal Way surf fisherman
An autopsy was conducted on Tuesday on 65 year old Antonio Inocencio. A beachcomber found the Federal Way surf fisherman on Sunday in the surf by Iron Springs.
Deputy Coroner Lane Youmans told KXRO that the Forensic Pathologist concluded that Inocencio died as a result of a probable cardiac arrhythmia. Cardiac arrhythmia is the condition in which the heart’s normal rhythm is disrupted, possibly due to being in the cold waters.
The Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Department reminds those on the beach to use caution when in the water. Waves can arrive unexpectedly, and rip tides are common. Waves can be large enough to move vehicles and knock down those along the surf line and carry a person out to sea.
