Report of Possible Drowning in Whitinsville

UPDTE 9:20 p.m. : The man pulled from the water has died. His son remains hospitalized.

UPDATE 7 p.m. : The two were fishing from the road next to Meadow Pond. Police say the man and young boy weren't wearing life jackets while fishing. They went into a 10-feet deep section of water and couldn't get out.

A passerby called 911 while two people, police officers and the fire chief jumped in.

Both the man and young boy--it is unconfirmed whether they are father and son--were in cardiac arrest when pulled from the water. They were rushed to UMass Medical Center in Worcester, MA.

Police have closed down the road to investigate, and they said the two are not from the immediate area and there was a language barrier when speaking to the relatives.

A red car was towed away from the popular fishing area, and the Worcester District Attorney's Office is handling the case now. There is no report on the condition of either the man or boy, and we are not sure if they are alive or dead.
