A 64-year-old Swansea man and former state trooper died Saturday after collapsing during the second annual Friends of Hunting Island 5K.
John Wonderly, who was participating in the race, collapsed at about 9:30 a.m. and was later pronounced dead at the scene, said Beaufort County Deputy Coroner David Ott.
Ott said Wonderly was thought to have died of natural causes but said the body was sent Saturday to the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston for an autopsy.
Wonderly was a former Marine and retired lance corporal with the S.C. Highway Patrol who worked mainly in Lexington County, Ott said.
