Mirror staff reports:

The body of a Federal Way man was discovered Sunday near Ocean Shores.

According to KXRO News, the man was identified as Antonio Inocencio, 65.

A beachcomber called 911 after finding the body about one mile north of Copalis Beach near Iron Springs.

KXRO reports that an autopsy concluded that Inocencio died as a result of probable cardiac arrhythmia, in which the heart's normal rhythm was disrupted, possibly from exposure to the cold waters.

Grays Harbor Sheriff's Department deputies also recovered Inocencio's vehicle with fish inside. According to initial reports, the victim was in the area for surf fishing, supposedly with a 58-year-old friend, also from Federal Way.

U.S. Coast Guard searched the water via helicopter while deputies searched the beach for the second man. The second man was found alive at his home in Federal Way, and according to a report by KBKW, he thought the fishing trip with his friend was scheduled for Monday.
