CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. (AP) — Authorities in San Diego County say a man has died while surfing at a Camp Pendleton beach.
The Medical Examiner says in a statement Sunday that other surfers saw 63-year-old Charles Solon Todd Jr. ride a wave to the shore on Saturday, sit on his board, then collapse forward.
They pulled Todd from the water and called 911. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him, but he was pronounced dead.
The coroner is investigating to determine the cause of death.
Todd lives with his wife in the Orange County city of Aliso Viejo.
