Rescued Fisherman Passes Away

CORPUS CHRISTI - The fisherman who was rescued by two kayakers Friday on Mustang Island has passed away.

The 69 year old was found 300 feet out, slumped over in his kayak. Two other kayakers heard his calls for help, so they pulled the man ashore where medics were waiting.

He was given CPR and taken to the hospital where he later died.

No word yet on how it happened, but we are told he may have had a heart attack or other health related issue.
