A Massachusetts man who was pulled from the Merrimack River after overturning his kayak last week has died.

The family of Kevin S. Cadigan, 50, of Lawrence, says he died the evening of July 5 at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston after being pulled from the river when he fell out of his kayak on June 29.

His family says he's survived by his wife Jennifer and their unborn child, his two sons from a previous marriage, four siblings and his nieces and nephews.
