Man drowns in Plymouth pond

A man drowned in a pond in Plymouth on Saturday afternoon, officials said.

The victim, who was not identified, was pronounced dead at the scene after he was pulled ashore by a jet ski operator, the Plymouth Fire Department said in a statement.

Firefighters responded to a 911 call of a reported drowning at White Island Pond near Arrowhead Road at about 3:10 p.m., the department said.

The jet ski operator found the victim and brought him to shore before calling 911, the statement said.

The man, who was unresponsive, was taken out of the water by first responders who attempted CPR, the department said. Brewster Ambulance Service also responded to the scene and “assumed patient care.”


The incident remains under investigation by Plymouth police and State Police assigned to the Plymouth district attorney’s office.

The drowning comes only one day after a 14-year-old boy and a Worcester police officer who was trying to save the teen drowned in a pond there.
