Coeur d’Alene triathlete, 60, dies of cardiac arrest

A 60-year-old man died early Saturday when he suffered cardiac arrest while participating in the Hayden View Triathlon.

Leslie Chariton, of Coeur d’Alene, was swimming in Hayden Lake just after 7:30 a.m. when he was pulled from the water and treated on Honeysuckle Beach, the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office said. He was transported to Kootenai Medical Center, where it was confirmed he died from cardiac arrest.

The race, in its third year, is what’s known as a “sprint tri.” It includes a half-mile swim, 10.2-mile bicycle ride and a 3.7-mile run, according to the event website.
