Heart attack apparent cause of deathPublished 11:11am Tuesday, August 7, 2012
The Pierz man who was found dead in Seven Lake Saturday apparently died of a heart attack, according to media reports from the Fire Academy of North Dakota.
The county sheriff’s office originally reported the death of James Reardon, 51, as a drowning but noted that it did not have an official cause of death.
Today, Reardon’s scuba diving partner told the media that Reardon had died from a heart attack.
Reardon’s lungs were apparently dry, meaning that he did not drown.
Reardon was engaged in a scuba diving survey of the lake before an academy training exercise.
