A 6-year-old boy died after being pulled unresponsive from Good Harbor Beach late Saturday afternoon, the Essex district attorney’s office said in a statement.
The boy, who is from Moscow, Russia, was pulled out of the water by his grandfather, the statement said.
“While the cause and manner of death are unknown at this time, it appears to be a medically related event,” read the statement.
City police and firefighters responded to the beach off Thatcher Road at 5:11 p.m. The boy was already out of the water when crews arrived, the statement said.
He was taken to Addison Gilbert Hospital in Gloucester, where he died, the statement said.
