DALLES, Ore. -- A Dalles man died on a windsurfing expedition on the Columbia River Wednesday.

According to Sherman County sheriff’s, 51-year-old Mark Estes was windsurfing upriver with friends when he got stranded on a sandbar. Friends said he was unable to get back to shore then quit breathing. The friends, who were certified medics called for help and started CPR.


This is from the news, not always the best sourse.

Most of the News Media puts out Version 4.0 or higher, their source being 3rd or 4th hand, at best!
I would assume their details to be fairly synthesized.
Trust only to those close.
Thanks Temira.

This is very sad news.

My condolences to Mark's family and friends.

Was it determined to be a heart attack?
