Massachusetts state and local police are investigating after a boater discovered a man's body Friday evening in the Connecticut River.
The boater called authorities when he made the discovery around 6 p.m. and then he stayed with the body so police could locate it, the Northwestern District Attorney's office announced in a statement.
A Northampton Police Department dispatcher traced the boater's phone call to about a mile and a half south of the Coolidge Bridge, near the Rainbow Beach area in Northampton, Massachusetts.
The Northampton police and fire departments responded by boat and recovered a male's body. The medical examiner is investigating the cause of death and the identification of the body.
