The Martin County Sheriff’s Office said it was likely the 37-year-old died of asphyxiation after being trapped.

Cops revealed Nagel was filming the sunrise before a sand dune collapsed on him, WFLA reported.

A woman searching for turtle nesting sites made the startling discovery, Treasure Coast Newspapers revealed.

Police also found a GoPro camera and a plastic bag at the scene.

Officials are still awaiting the result of a toxicology test that is being conducted.

Police said the findings “would not likely change the outcome of this incident, which is a tragic accident.”

Officials believe an artificial sand dune has collapsed on Nagel.

Indian river warden Jim Moir said: “This is sand or dune deposited by dredgers and not by nature.

“It may not have settled naturally over time. It may have just been deposited and not compacted.”

The police do not believe it was a foul play.

Nagel’s brother Will wrote a heartbreaking tribute on Facebook.

He said he was “sad” and devastated after the tragedy.

Will added, “Please remember to enjoy your life and not take a second for granted.”

In May, teenager Ian Spendlove died after a sand dune unexpectedly collapsed on him.

The 13-year-old had dug a tunnel in Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park in Utah.

A family member who saw the dune collapse notified park officials, who were desperate to find Spendlove, according to Utah State Parks.
