Fountain County, IN man drowns in creek

A heart attack and drowning were contributing factors in the death of a Covington, Indiana man this week. A cause of death investigation was conducted after 59-year-old Keith Summers was found face down in a creek just south of Veedersburg Wednesday.

According to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Summers had left to go fishing at Coal Creek sometime Wednesday afternoon. His brother Joe became worried when Keith had not returned for several hours because of the heavy rains that day.

Keith’s car was discovered at the Coal Creek covered bridge in southwestern Fountain County. His body was found floating 100 yards downstream of the bridge.

A Tippecanoe County Coroner's Office autopsy was conducted on Summers ruling his death as an accident. The primary cause of death was ruled a heart attack with drowning as a contributing factor.

Investigators say it is unclear how Summers ended up in the creek.
