A Colorado man died following a triathlon at Sugden Regional Park in East Naples on Sunday, officials said.

A Collier County Sheriff’s Office deputy stationed at the event to coordinate traffic was alerted by a man about 7:20 a.m. that “there is a man in the water, not breathing,” according to a Sheriff’s Office incident report.

The deputy ran to the shoreline of the lake where he found a man, later identified as 75-year-old James Treadwell, lying on the sand and being tended to by a Collier County EMS paramedic, two race participants and Treadwell’s wife, the report states.

After confirming Treadwell had no pulse and wasn’t breathing, the group began cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
