Paddleboarder Dies At Terramar

by The Editors on April 12, 2013

Michael Massie, 54, reportedly died “while sitting on a Carlsbad beach” on Wednesday afternoon, April 10, 2013, according to a story in the UT San Diego.

Witnesses saw the Carlsbad man sit in the sand after riding his board near Terramar Beach, just south of the Encina power plant. He then leaned over into a strange position, and slid into the water, Ellano said. . . He was dragged back to the shore, and witnesses called 911. Massie was taken to Tri-City Medical Center, where he died at 7:03 p.m., shortly after he arrived at the hospital.

Massie reportedly died of “natural causes related to cardiovascular disease.” Our thoughts are with Massie’s family and friends.
