LAMOINE — Officials have released the name of a New Hampshire man who died while kayaking off the Maine coast.

Marine Patrol Officer Colin MacDonald said 43-year-old Steven Brooks of Stratham died after his kayak capsized Sunday afternoon in the waters between Bar Harbor and Lamoine off Mount Desert Island. His kayaking companion tried to rescue him, but was unable to keep him above water.

Police tell the Bangor Daily News that officials haven’t determined if Brooks died from drowning or a possible medical condition that might have contributed to the accident.
