Coroner's officials have identified a man who was wearing a life jacket when he drowned about 100 yards from a lifeguard tower at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point.

Harold Richard Hart, 48, was discovered floating on his back Friday afternoon by a paddle boarder who called authorities. Hart, who lived on a boat in the area, apparently drowned about 8:30 a.m., according to Larry Esslinger, spokesman for the Orange County coroner's office.

An autopsy was expected to be conducted Saturday morning, Esslinger said.
