From the Times-Standard:
An experienced surfer died at Shelter Cove on Tuesday after suffering a “cardiac event,” the coroner’s office said.
Coroner Frank Jager said Randy Foster, 57, a Redway resident, was able to make it back to the shore, where he collapsed. Several people at the beach tried to help and administered CPR, Jager said.
Jager said Foster was an experienced surfer who knew the area.
Much sympathy to his family.
