WARREN COUNTY, Ohio (WXIX) - A 31-year-old from Pennsylvania has been identified as the jet skier who died Sunday at Caesar Creek State Park.

Donnell Jordan, 31, of Pennsylvania, was thrown off a jet ski around 4 p.m., according to the Warren County Coroner’s Office.

Jordan died after fellow boaters pulled him out of the water and up to shore, the coroner’s office said.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) said Monday Jordan might have suffered a medical emergency.

Additional testing will be needed to determine Jordan’s cause of death, according to Amy DeBorde at the coroner’s office.

She says Jordan’s preliminary autopsy results are inconclusive, but no foul play is suspected.
