Heart problems have been linked with the death of Daniel Khalil, 35, who died Saturday while duck hunting on Mosquito Creek Reservoir.
According to the Trumbull County coroner the cause of death for Khalil was ischemic heart disease associated with drowning.
Dr. Humphrey Germaniuk, said Khalil's heart "didn't have much reserve," so the added stress of the situation led to his death. However, Germaniuk noted it will take about eight weeks for tests to return and provide a better understanding of the death.
Khalil had been duck hunting on the reservoir in Bazetta with two other men when their boat capsized about 6 a.m. Bill Clark, another hunter at the reservoir, called 911 after hearing shouts for help.
The Bazetta Fire Department responded to the call and was assisted by multiple agencies in a search effort that included everything from a cadaver dog to divers.
Khalil's body was found by a hunter walking along the shoreline about 5 p.m. Saturday.
The accident investigation has been turned over to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.
Bethany McCorkle, from the ODNR Office of Communications, said the department is working on plans to raise the boat. She said they do not have a set timeline for when the investigation will be completed.
The other men who were with Khalil, and whose names are not being released, were rescued from the water about 7:15 a.m.
Both men were taken to St. Joseph Health Center in Warren and released the same day.
