Man dies after being found unresponsive along river Friday

A man who was found unresponsive Friday on the bank of the American River downstream from Sunrise Boulevard died at a hospital later that day.

The Sacramento County Coroner's Office website identified him as Frank Clifford Gould, 50, of Rancho Cordova. The website lists the cause of death as undetermined but rules out homicide.

Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District firefighters received a report about 1:30 p.m. of a body floating in the river. A rescue boat crew and helicopter located the man, who was partially on shore. Rescue crews administered CPR and transported him to Mercy San Juan Medical Center.
