Duxbury: ***UPDATE*** Unconscious Man Pulled from Water at Shipyard Lane Dies

A 72-year-old man was pulled out of the water today (Monday) in Duxbury about 100 yards from shore at Shipyard Lane beach.

WATD’s Charles Mathewson spoke with two young women in kayaks, who found the man floating face down in the water.

The women put the man on a paddle board of a third person who came out to help and did CPR on the way back to shore.

Duxbury emergency crews put the man into an ambulance and took him to Beth Israel Deaconess in Plymouth where he was pronounced dead.

The young women had some formal training as they had previously worked as Duxbury lifeguards.
