Quincy: Quincy man drowns after checking lobster traps

A Quincy man has died after falling in the water after he and a friend had checked lobster traps.

The other man, 45-year-old Tim Sheehan, jumped in for a rescue attempt.

Rescuers performed cardio-pulmonary resuscitation on Walsh and both men were taken to Quincy Medical Center.

Walsh was pronounced dead about an hour later.
