One man killed, another injured after being ejected from boat on Lake Quinsigamond in Worcester

Divers recovered a man’s body from Lake Quinsigamond in Worcester Saturday night following an hours-long search after he and another man were thrown from their boat earlier in the day, officials said.

State Police and Worcester police and fire crews were called to Regatta Point on North Lake Avenue in Worcester for a report of a boating accident shortly before 6 p.m., David Procopio, a State Police spokesman, said in an e-mail.

One man was rescued but suffered a serious leg injury and was taken to a local hospital, Procopio said.

Divers from the Worcester Fire Department and State Police were called in to search the waters while the state Environmental Police searched by boat, and a State Police helicopter assisted from above, Procopio said.


State Police divers recovered the body just before 10 p.m. in about 60 feet of water and approximately 200 yards from the eastern shore, he said.

Police did not release the man’s name.
