The Press of Atlantic City reports 67-year-old James Lane drowned in the ocean off Grant Beach near Cape May, New Jersey.

The report says Lane was found face-down in the surf about 50 yards from the beach.

Lane was pronounced dead at Cape Regional Medical Center.

Officials had said Grant Beach is not actively guarded since the weekend after Labor day.
