Natick first responders and partner organizations responded early Saturday night to an incident on the Lake Cochituate sub-basin dubbed Fisk Pond, where an overturned canoe left one occupant swimming safely to shore but another dead.
The body of the man, whose identity hasn’t been disclosed, was discovered around 10:30pm using sonar.
The District 14 Dive Team, State Police and Massachusetts Environmental Police joined Natick police and fire on the scene at the south pond near the dog park on Rte. 135. What began as a rescue mission turned to a recovery operation.
Those who were on the water Saturday said that while the weather was beautiful, water was choppy.
