An Ocean View man, 68, died of a heart attack while fishing on a boat Nov. 19, the medical examiner says.
Richard M. Butewicz was fishing alone on a 21-foot fishing boat in the Indian River Inlet when he had a heart attack, said Sgt. Gregory Rhodes of Delaware Division of Fish and Wildlife Enforcement.
Passing boats tried to help after they noticed the boat drifting near South Shore Marina, Rhodes said.
The Delaware Medical Examiner's Office ruled Butewicz died from a heart attack.
