Massachusetts man drowns in Margaree River while on fishing trip
A Massachusetts man drowned in the Margaree River while on a fishing trip.
Inverness County District RCMP say they were called to the river near Margaree Forks, N.S. at around 5:45 p.m. Tuesday.
The initial report was that two men were in distress in the river.
When officers arrived, members of the Margaree Forks Volunteer Fire Department had already pulled the two men, who were fishing, out of the water.
Paramedics and volunteer firefighters performed CPR on a 73-year-old man who was unconscious, but he could not be revived.
The other man, 63, was treated for signs of exposure.
