VEEDERSBURG, Ind. (AP) - Authorities say a western Indiana man whose body was found floating in a creek died accidentally.

Indiana conservation officer Cpl. Blaine Gillan says say the body of 59-year-old Keith Summers of Covington was found Wednesday evening by his brother in Coal Creek near the town of Veedersburg, about 65 miles northwest of Indianapolis.

After an autopsy Thursday, Summers' death was ruled an accident with the primary cause of death a heart attack with drowning as a contributing factor.

Gillan says it's unclear how Summers ended up in the creek. Relatives said Summers had gone fishing Wednesday afternoon.
