Firefighters retrieved the man, later identified as James D. Kimball, 49, and rushed him to Kent Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Witnesses told police they had seen Kimball digging for quahogs.

The cause of his death is now under investigation, but police say the nature of the incident does not appear suspicious.
