Former world champion surfer Andy Irons dies

Former three-time world surfing champion Andy Irons has died.
Phil Irons, the father of the 32-year-old surfer, confirmed his son's death Tuesday. The cause of death was not immediately known.
The younger Irons was found dead in a hotel room in Dallas, where he was on a layover en route to him home on Kauai. He was returning from Puerto Rico, where he was to have competed in the 2010 Rip Curl Pro Search.
He was expected to compete against two Australian surfers in his first heat Saturday, but didn't show up, much to the confusion of commentators. Irons again was absent for his second heat Sunday.
Family members from Hawaii were headed to Dallas.
