Mass. kayaker drowns in Piermont lake

PIERMONT — A kayaker died after capsizing on Lake Tarleton in Grafton County Saturday, New Hampshire State Police said.

The 64-year-old man was paddling near the public boat launch when he capsized at about noon.

The man was able to call for help and nearby boaters managed to get him to shore, but CPR efforts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful, State Police’s Marine Patrol said in a release.

An autopsy was scheduled for Sunday.

The Marine Patrol said the man was from Athol, Mass., but had not yet released his name.
