Updated at 8:30 p.m. Sunday with name of victim.
The county Medical Examiner's Office on Sunday identified the 57-year-old Coronado man who died when he fell off his sailboat in San Diego Bay as Ronald Frank Wood.
An autopsy was pending earlier on the victim, who was sailing with two friends near National City when he fell overboard about 4:15 p.m. Saturday, according to the Medical Examiner's Office. He apparently lived on the sailboat.
The passengers on the 36-foot “La Paloma” radioed for help but were unable to handle the boat well enough to get the man out of the water, according to reports.
A U.S. Coast Guard crew was alerted, and U.S. Naval Security and San Diego Harbor Police recoved the body.
