An 88-year-old man reportedly died of a heart attack as he was scattering his wife’s ashes across a lake in Indiana.
Ralph Miyata fell into Pine Lake in LaPorte County. His cause of death was ruled a heart attack. A retired doctor, who had been friends with Miyata for 30 years, said that he helped Miyata get off a boat and onto the dock before turning away. He heard a splash of water as the 88-year-old fell off the dock.
Miyata’s wife died in April and Miyata had wanted to leave his wife’s remains at Pine Lake.
