San Ramon and East Bay Regional Park District police officers found a man who had only just arrived in this country three short months ago dead on a trailside bench near Alcosta Boulevard Friday night, apparently of a heart attack.
Park District Police Lt. Lance Brede said Saturday that the 68-year-old East Indian man left his family’s home in San Ramon for an evening walk. He was found, apparently deceased, on a bench adjacent to the Iron Horse trail at Alcosta Blvd. around 9:45 p.m. Friday.
Officers immediately initiated life-saving measures but San Ramon Valley firefighters eventually determined that the man, who had a history of cardiac issues, had died.
The man’s family, looking for him when he failed to return home, happened upon the scene and informed San Ramon and East Bay Regional Park District officers that the victim had only arrived in the United States three months earlier.
His name was not immediately released pending notification of all family members.
