    The Clark patch had a little more info. Seems they found him in waist deep water. He might have gotten stressed out by the whole ordeal and had a heart attack. Tough break, rip.

    "He has been identified as Ronald Moore, 69, of Union.Moore was fishing in the surf at the Sandy Hook fishing beach before 8 a.m. Wednesday when his gear got carried out in a wave. He tried to retrieve it and that's when he, too, got pulled out into the rough surf. The currents around Sandy Hook, a peninsula, can be very strong.
    Another fisherman saw the man getting pulled out into the icy ocean water and called 911. Rangers with the National Park Service responded, as did Middletown police and Sea Bright Fire Rescue. When they got there, Moore was in waist-deep water and he was pulled from the water by park rangers, and Sea Bright personnel performed CPR. Past Patch reporting: Fisherman Rescued Off Sandy Hook Dies
    The man was rushed to Monmouth Medical Center in West Long Branch in extremely serious condition, but he was pronounced dead at the hospital at 9:56 a.m. Wednesday. The investigation by police showed that the drowning was accidental. Police ask if anyone has additional information, to please call the Middletown Twp. Police Detective Bureau at (732) 615-2120."

    Wonder how many ronald moores live in union? Got this from a search. The guy named ronald moore went down after hurricane Irma to help out the people there. Pic looks like a guy who is not 69, maybe his son?

    I heard he was fishing a rod with bait. A fish hit and started taking the rod into the water. He went after it and then got out too far. I'm not making judgements here, it's still very sad no matter what happened. No fish is worth your life though. RIP Sir.
