Wellesley reopens pond where boy died

Town officials say lifeguards not at fault in drowning

Wellesley town officials on Friday reopened Morses Pond, a popular swimming hole where a 10-year-old boy drowned earlier this month, after finding no fault on the part of the lifeguards on duty and after making several changes to the pond’s signs and safety policies.

The pond had been closed since June 1, following the death of Alexander Glennon of Manchester, N.H., who drowned in the crowded pond while the beach was fully staffed with lifeguards.
