The man stopped breathing a short time after emergency personnel arrived. Medics administered CPR and took him to the hospital in Polson, where he was later pronounced dead.

Yonkin tells KERR-AM that the man’s body was taken to the state medical examiner’s office in Missoula to determine the cause of death.
