Portland firefighter died from heart attack, medical examiner says

PORTLAND (WGME) -- The Maine Medical Examiner tells CBS 13 that a veteran firefighter died of a massive heart attack.

Forty-three-year-old Michael Kucsma was Captain with the Portland Fire Department and deputy chief with the Gorham Fire Department. He was diving with a group of friends in Casco Bay Monday.

The divers he was with came up for air, but Kucsma didn't re-surface. The medical examiner's office says Kucsma also suffered from coronary artery disease.
His funeral is set for Saturday morning.
