The body of a 19-year-old from Boston was recovered from Turtle Pond in Hyde Park Thursday night, about three hours after rescue crews responded to a report of a missing swimmer, State Police said.

The teen was pronounced dead at the scene, said David Procopio, a State Police spokesman.

Rescue crews responded around 5:45 p.m. for a report of a missing swimmer. The State Police dive team, and air wing responded, along with the Boston fire and police, according to State Police.

State Police announced shortly after 8 p.m. that the body had been recovered. No further information was immediately released.


Turtle Pond is located in the Stony Brook Reservation, which is run by the state Department of Conservation and Recreation.
