No drugs, alcohol in drowning victim's body

A San Diego County man who drowned in Newport Beach in October had no drugs or alcohol in his system when he died, an Orange County Sheriff-Coroner toxicology report showed.

Soroy Ramsean, 22, of Pine Valley, died Oct. 13 in the surfline off 20th Street after disappearing under the water.

Witnesses reported seeing him go underwater at 18th Street. Some tried to save him, but were unsuccessful. Lifeguards from up and down the Orange County coast, along with the Harbor Patrol and Coast Guard, aided in the search.

Ramsean's body was found about an hour later.
