Jogger who collapsed in Prospect Park dies

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (AP) -- A jogger who collapsed in Brooklyn's Prospect Park and remained unidentified and unconscious for a week in a hospital has died.

Rynn Berry died Thursday at New York Methodist Hospital.

The 68-year-old man was taken to the hospital in critical condition on Dec. 31. He was not carrying any identification.

His half brother, Charles Berry, identified him this week after seeing a photograph on social media of a man in a hospital bed with various tubes attached to him. The New York Times says he confirmed the death.

Rynn Berry was a respected figure in the vegetarian and vegan movements. He self-published a book titled "Vegan Guide to New York City." He also wrote several other books on the history of vegans and vegetarians.
