Body pulled from Merrimack River in Nashua

A fisherman pulled a body he found floating in the Merrimack River in Nashua Thursday afternoon.

The fisherman called 911 about 3:20 p.m. to report a possible drowning near the Sagamore Bridge, which connects Nashua and Hudson.

Nashua police and firefighters as well as the New Hampshire State Police Marine Patrol are responding.

Five people - including a 3-year-old girl - drowned in New Hampshire waterways since July 4th weekend.

If confirmed, this incident would be the sixth.
