The county Coroner's Office is investigating the death of a 47-year-old El Centro man who lost consciousness and died while sitting on a couch in his home Thursday.
Theodoro Castanada Gonzales was found by family members in the evening. They attempted to revive him but were unable to do so.
At that point they called authorities, who pronounced Gonzalez dead at the scene. The coroner was called to the apartment in the 300 block of East Main Street shortly before 11 p.m.
County Coroner Investigator Gary Hayes said a cause of death had yet to be determined. He said an autopsy is scheduled for Saturday.
