Person Who Fell Overboard Rescued From Wareham Pond
A person was rescued from a Wareham pond Sunday after falling overboard and being struck by their vessel.
At about 4:25 p.m. on July 3, the Wareham Department of Natural Resources, Wareham Police, Wareham EMS and the Wareham Fire Department responded to Glen Charlie Pond near Wareham Lake Shores for a report of a single vessel accident with injuries to the vessel’s sole occupant.
According to Wareham DNR, the victim fell overboard and their unmanned vessel then reportedly struck them, causing serious injuries.
The victim was pulled from the water by other boaters and people from the shore, and taken ashore by another boater. There, first aid was administered to control the bleeding until first responders could arrive.
The victim was then transported to Tobey Hospital, and their condition is unknown at this time.
The incident will be investigated by the Massachusetts Environmental Police, the DNR said.
