SE Mass

HYANNIS, Mass. (AP) — One person is dead after two men on a squid fishing boat went overboard near Hyannis.

The men went overboard around 7:45 p.m. Saturday off Point Gammon.

A Good Smaritan saved one of them and brought him to shore, but the second man, a 55-year-old squid fisherman, couldn’t be rescued.

The U.S. Coast Guard found him just before 8 a.m. Sunday morning. He was taken to a waiting ambulance, and later pronounced dead.
