The body of a 44-year-old man who was found in the bushes near Overlake Hospital’s emergency room Tuesday night has been identified as Talal Al-namrouti of Bellevue, officials said.
Al-namrouti died of coronary thrombosis, or heart disease, according to the King County Medical Examiner’s Office. His death has been certified a natural death.
The man experienced difficulty breathing earlier in the day and apparently drove to Overlake for treatment, Bellevue Police said. Hospital security personnel found him lying in the bushes about 30 yards west of the ambulance entrance to the emergency department around 11 p.m.
Bellevue firefighters, already at Overlake on an unrelated incident, as well as hospital staff attempted life-saving measures in the emergency room, but were unable to revive the man.
Around 11:10 p.m., Bellevue Police were called to the scene to investigate. They found no signs of foul play.
