A body of a man was located at the Port of Ilwaco in Washington on Monday. Chief Wright with the Long Beach Police Department reported that the death appears to have been accidental because there was no indication of foul play.
The early investigation indicated that the man was pulling a cart of fishing supplies on the port docks when he fell into the water. It is not yet known what caused the man to fall into the water. The incident happened between 11:00am and 11:15am.
The man was apparently bringing gear to a waiting fishing vessel. When he did not arrive as scheduled, the boat owner went searching for him and discovered his body in the water with floating fishing gear. The name of the man has not yet been released.
