Virginia Marine Resources Commission spokesman John Bull says 30-year-old John Haywood of Hayes was pronounced dead at a hospital shortly before 3:30 a.m. Sunday.
Bull tells The Daily Press (http://bit.ly/TBoeKr ) that Haywood was fishing with friends on a boat near the beach when he jumped out and swam to a bar. He says Haywood put his life jacket on and swam back to the boat four or five hours later. He was found unresponsive a few feet away.
