Arthur Heckman Obituary, Death Cause – The victim of an accident that took place on Saturday and involved an all-terrain vehicle (also known as an ATV) has been identified as the person who tragically lost their life as a result of the incident. On the evening of Saturday, May 27, 2023, just before 5:30 o’clock in the evening, emergency personnel were called to the Locust Valley Fish and Game Club located at 400 Back Road in Barnesville, Ryan Township, for a one-of-a-kind mission.
The goal was to rescue a person who had become trapped inside the club. The club was in the middle of searching for a missing person who was believed to be in the vicinity but had not been seen in some time. The incident that was reported involved an all-terrain vehicle (ATV), and the person who was injured in the accident had been submerged in water for a considerable amount of time after the accident took occurred.
At 6:02 p.m., Deputy Coroner Andrew Szczyglak of the Schuylkill County Coroner’s Office was called to the scene and pronounced Arthur Heckman, 72, a resident of Barnesville, to be dead at the spot. Szczyglak came from the Schuylkill County Coroner’s Office. At the site, it was determined that Heckman was no longer alive. According to Szczyglak, a local resident who fished at the pond quite frequently, who was interviewed by Skook News, Heckman was a person who lived in the area.
This information was provided by Szczyglak. The initial findings of the investigation indicate that Heckman was driving his ATV around the edge of the pond when he lost control of the vehicle, wandered too close to the water, and ultimately drowned. The next week should see the completion of the autopsy, as that is the current plan.
