DA: 19-year-old pulled from Wilmington lake dies

WILMINGTON, MASS. (WHDH) - A 19-year-old man pulled from Silver Lake in Wilmington late Wednesday afternoon has died, officials say.

Emergency crews responding to a report of a possible drowning at Silver Lake about 5:30 p.m. learned that a 19-year-old had gone underwater while swimming with relatives and hadn’t come back up, according to the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office.

A preliminary investigation suggests that good Samaritans on the beach attempted to rescue him but were unsuccessful.

Officials say first responders were able to locate the victim and provide life-saving efforts.

He was transported to Winchester Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The incident remains under investigation.
