ALBERTVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Nick Honea, son of the mayor of Albertville, died from an apparent accidental overexposure to carbon monoxide on Thursday morning.

The 27-year-old was pressure washing a friend's garage at a house on Martling Road when he was overcome by carbon monoxide. 

Honea had the garage doors down and a side door open, but it wasn't enough to ventilate the room.

Honea died between 2-3 a.m. and was found by the homeowner around 11 a.m.

The coroner has ruled the death accidental.

Nick Honea had a brush with fame on cable television; he was a contestant during the second season of the CMT reality competition series "Redneck Island" and was among the seven final contestants. His contestant profile described Nick as a "classic example of someone who puts everything out there for the world to see."

"His love of life is completely infectious," it went on to say.
