Farmington Man Dies After Diving into Lake in Wilton
WILTON, Maine - A Farmington man died Tuesday after diving from his pontoon boat into Wilson Lake in Wilton.
The Maine Warden Service says Jeffrey Mitchell, 63, was struggling when he surfaced. A friend he was boating with, and other boaters nearby, managed to get Mitchell out of the water.
They transported him to a nearby boat landing, where they were met by medical personnel who had been called to the scene at about 4:36 p.m.
Mitchell was pronounced dead at the scene.
Officials say floatation devices were on board the pontoon boat, but Mitchell wasn't using them.
The incident remains under investigation.
