Re: plum island takes another...
That girl was the first of three lives claimed in as many days by the Merrimack River. A sixty some year old man who fell in tying up his boat the next day, he was removed from the water but died of a heart attack. Then on Thursday a 13 year old boy went after a ball, his body was recovered about an hour later. Please everyone be careful, wear your life jackets and carry a signaling device such as a whistle esp. at night.
After all this we were driving back through Maine and seen a mother letting her young daughter play unattended on a floating dock at the mouth of the Saco River. This dock is in mid-channel, the poor kid wouldn't have a chance if she fell in.
God be with these families.
