Georgia man dies while kayaking in Daytona Beach
Authorities say a 33-year-old Georgia man has died after apparently suffering a medical emergency while kayaking in Daytona Beach.
Ponce Inlet police say an autopsy will be performed Monday to determine how Antonio M. Williams of Pooler, Ga., died. He was kayaking Saturday afternoon in Ponce de Leon Inlet.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that Sea Tow Daytona owner Nik Foster told police one of his captains was putting a boat away when he heard screams for help. The captain found five kayakers near the marina and one of them needed emergency medical attention.
Foster says the captain and a person from the marina pulled the man onto the Sea Tow boat and took him to the Coast Guard station in New Smyrna Beach.
