Delaware man dies while kite boarding

Dewey Beach, Del. – A death investigation is underway after a kite boarding practice took a turn for the worst.  Earlier this afternoon, Delaware state police responded to the towers bay area of the Delaware Seashore State Park.  They say a 48-year-old man met with his father to practice kite boarding using just the harness and kite, no board.  The man was standing in the water when heavy winds started to pull him farther out, into deeper water.  The father called 911. Natural Resource Police responded and began to look for the man.  His body was found a few hours later along the shore, his name hasn’t been released and won’t be until his family is notified.
