RIVERSIDE, Ohio (WDTN) – The man who was pulled unconscious from Eastwood Lake Tuesday afternoon has died.

The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office says Joseph Rousch, 46, of Huber Heights, was riding his jet ski when he suffered an apparent asthma attack.

Investigators say he fell into the water when a fellow jet skier returned to shore to get Rousch’s inhaler.
