Norwell: Three teens rescued in swamp near Wompatuck State Park

Three teenage boys have been rescued after spending hours trapped in a swamp near Wompatuck State Park.

The father of one of the teens said the boys headed to the swamp in Norwell late Tuesday afternoon, saying they were going for a walk.  Marc Holler says he went looking for the teens when they didn’t return.

He said that he had almost given up searching when he heard a cry for help. Rescuers aided by a police air wing located the boys around 9:30 p.m.

The boys were then pulled out of the waist-high water.

Shortly after 11:00 p.m., the boys were taken by ambulance to South Shore Hospital to be checked out.

Rescuers say the teens might have hypothermia or frostbite, but no life-threatening injuries.

About David Skill

Dave Skill’s radio career began in the fall of 1964 when he arrived on the campus of Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA. Dave barely got his bags unpacked when he paid a visit to WCHC, the campus radio station. And, before he knew it, he was spending so much time as a disc jockey and news writer/reporter, it seemed like he was majoring in “radio” and minoring in academics at “The Cross”. As you might imagine, his grades reflected it! During his junior and senior years, he also worked weekends in news and as a disc jockey at WNEB, the CBS radio affiliate in Worcester at the time.
