RED WING — A 63-year-old Red Wing man was pronounced dead at the scene early Wednesday morning after he was found lying on a road near the marina.

The Red Wing Police Department's investigation ruled out foul plan. An unidentified medical condition could have played a role, according to Police Chief Roger Pohlman.

The man has not yet been identified by authorities. Pohlman said Friday that his wife has been told, but he declined to reveal the man's name until extended family also have been informed.

Authorities received a distress call at 5:13 a.m. when the unresponsive man was reported lying on the road on the 900 block of Levee Road, which parallels the Mississippi River. Attempts to revive him were not successful.

Pohlman said the man lives in Red Wing but spends his summer on a boat on the Mississippi River.
