Man dies after crashing into boat off Nantucket island

A man has died after crashing in the water off the northern New England coast, the Coast Guard said on Monday.

A Coast Guard spokesman said the man was on a yacht with four other people when he fell into the water and then was pulled ashore.

“At approximately 11:30am on Saturday, a Coast Guard vessel was called to assist with the rescue of a person who fell into Lake Newburyport,” the Coast Guards spokesman said in a statement.

The spokesman said it was unclear what prompted the man to fall into the lake.
