Medical Examiner rules out trauma and foul play in Irons' death

DALLAS-FORT WORTH (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Texas County Medical Examiner has ruled out trauma and foul play in the death of surfing champion Andy Irons.

Irons was found dead Tuesday in a hotel room near the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

The 32-year-old Hanalei surfer was on his way home from Puerto Rico when an illness, possibly Dengue Fever, forced him to withdraw from a surf contest.

In a report, the Tarrant County Medical Examiner says the cause and manner of death are pending due to completion of lab tests, which could take several weeks.
