SANDY HOOK, N.J. - State Police are awaiting autopsy results after a New York man was found dead aboard a sailboat that ran aground on a New Jersey beach.
State Police Capt. Stephen Jones says witnesses observed the 29-foot vessel drifting before it came ashore on a beach at Gateway National Recreation Area at Sandy Hook on Thursday.
The man aboard the vessel was pronounced dead at the scene.
The vessel is registered to a 73-year-old Brooklyn, New York, resident. Jones says authorities are not releasing his name because he may have relatives overseas.
Jones says nothing suspicious was observed on the vessel.
