Man drowns at Lake Worth Beach

Posted:

LAKE WORTH BEACH, FL (WFLX) -- The rough waves of the Atlantic Ocean claimed the life of a man Sunday afternoon.

Joseph Baker of West Palm Beach died around noon at JFK Medical Center after being found in the ocean along an unguarded  stretch of the shore near Lake Worth beach.

Friends say the victim had a weak heart, but it's still unclear whether he drowned or had a medical problem.

The Palm Beach County medical examiner will perform an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

Just hours later, two swimmers at MacArthur Beach State Park had to be rescued after getting caught in the rip currents.

The two were taken to the hospital in unknown condition.
