TASWELL, Ind. (AP) -- Authorities say a woman who died on southern Indiana's Patoka Reservoir over the weekend succumbed to a heart problem.
 
Conservation Officer Jeffrey Milner said Tuesday that 55-year-old Patti Hoskins-Owens died of an "acute heart event."
 
Milner told The Republic (http://bit.ly/1fx8m7i ) an autopsy was performed at St. Vincent Salem Hospital on Monday.
 
Officers had said Hoskins-Owens had been in the water on a raft Sunday afternoon when she cried for help getting back to a boat. Once on the boat, she became unresponsive.
 
The incident occurred in the Sycamore Creek area of the reservoir about 45 miles west of Louisville, Ky.
