Dover-Foxcroft Man Dies While Fishing At Local Pond
A local man died Saturday after falling from his canoe while fishing on Long Pond in Piscataquis County, the Maine Warden Service said on Monday.
Kevin Pullyard, 52, of Dover-Foxcroft, was pronounced dead on the scene, reports the Bangor Daily News.
After Pullyard fell into the water, three of his friends ran to another campsite, found another watercraft, went out on the lake and pulled him from the water, said Maine Warden Service Cpl. John MacDonald.
Pullyard was unresponsive and attempts to revive him were unsuccessful.
MacDonald said Pullyard was wearing a flotation device.
“Since it was a witnessed event, I’m told an autopsy will not be done,” MacDonald said.
