Police Search Otis Reservoir For Missing Boater

otisOTIS, Mass (WGGB) — Rescuers are searching the Otis Reservoir for the body of a person who jumped off a boat. A State Police helicopter and dive teams were called in around 2:30PM to assist the Otis Police and Fire Departments with their search. Police say three people were on the boat, when two of them jumped off. One of the swimmers could not get back to the boat because it stalled, and he hasn’t been seen since. Police don’t believe that individual was a good swimmer.  ABC40 has a crew on scene and will bring you the latest details as they become available.

    Guys a 24-year old and his father were taking out a boat for the day. He did not know how to swim ans their boat ran out of gas. He went to fill the boat with a gas can and fell in. His father tried to hold him for as long as he could, but had to let go. The 24-year old later drowned and authorities and dive teams are trying to locate his body. RIP Bro!!!!!
