A 24-year-old Greenfield Twp. man died Saturday night after a kayaking incident earlier in the day at Lackawanna State Park.
Lackawanna County Coroner Timothy Rowland said David J. Nicoteri died at 8:17 p.m. in the intensive care unit at Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton.
He had been taken to the hospital after he fell out of his kayak at Lackawanna Lake at 12:23 p.m.
On Monday, Rowland ruled the man’s drowning death accidental after an autopsy.
The autopsy concluded no foul play was involved.
The 1,445-acre Lackawanna State Park is in Benton and North Abington townships, about 10 miles north of Scranton. The 198-acre Lackawanna Lake is surrounded by picnic and camping areas and multiuse trails.
