Pasco Man in Floodwater Died of Drowning

NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. (AP) — Officials say a man whose body was found in Tampa Bay area floodwaters shortly after Tropical Storm Debby swept through the area died from drowning.

A medical examiner said Thursday that David Glenn Huntley drowned. Officials also said cardiovascular issues were an additional factor.

The medical examiner ruled the death as accidental and storm related.

Huntley was found Wednesday morning near the Anclote River in New Port Richey.

The body of another person was found floating in water in Pinellas County on Wednesday. No further information about that death was available.
