A 63-year-old Monroe County man was pronounced dead after being found unresponsive on a golf course in Polk Township.
Warren R. Remaley, of the Kunkletown section of Polk Township, was found by his son Tuesday night along the golf cart path at Hideaway Hills Golf Course, according to Monroe County Coroner Bob Allen.
Allen said Remaley was riding his Suzuki Quad four-wheeler along the golf cart path, which is near his home. After about an hour-and-a-half, when Remaley didn't return, his son took his own four-wheeler to look for him.
Remaley was found near his four-wheeler, which was still running and had its lights on. Remaley's son took him back home and called 911. Remaley was pronounced dead at his home, according to Allen.
On Thursday, Allen ruled the cause of death was accidental.
After performing an autopsy at Lehigh Valley Hospital near Allentown, Allen said Remaley died of blunt force trauma to his chest and possible hypothermia.
The coroner attributed the trauma to the ATV being on top of Remaley and added hypothermia may have set in because of the temperature and the amount time he was missing.
