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.
Where is this? Near the Walmart?
Yes, Maria… on the trail.
Any more information on this?
A natural death right?
It appears so, Mara. In this country a short three months…
I live across the street!
Natural death is what I heard, I live across the street!
Apparent heart attack, Jennifer. We’re sure it was disturbing for the whole neighborhood.
Thoughts and prayers for his family…
Very close to home. very sorry to hear this and wish his family the best during these most traumatic of times.
Really sad. A reminder that death can come for any of us at any time. Wow.
