But it’s not yet known what caused the death of Gary Pasternak, who was unconscious when he was pulled from the ocean late Saturday morning. The 59-year-old Ocean City man was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Crews began searching the waters around 10:25 a.m., after an Ocean City beach patrol member spotted an unmanned kayak floating about 300 yards off shore. Pasternak was found a short time later.

It appears that Pasternak entered the ocean alone near 21st Street in Ocean City sometime around 9:30 a.m. Saturday.
