NEWPORT CITY, VT â€“ A sailing trip on Lake Memphremagog turned tragic for 58-year-old John Connell of Calais, VT, Sunday afternoon.
Connell jumped off the sailboat he was on in an attempt to retrieve a canoe his boat had in tow, Police Chief J. Paul Duquette said. Duquette said Connell took a few strokes away from the boat and hollered back to his friend that he was having breathing difficulties. Connellâ€™s friend, who was still on the boat in clothes, went below to change but, by the time he returned to the main deck, Connell had disappeared.
