PIERMONT, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire State Police have identified a 64-year-old man from Athol, Massachusetts, who died over the weekend after his kayak turned over on Lake Tarleton.

Police say a call came in after noon Saturday that a kayak had capsized near the public boat launch on the lake near Piermont, New Hampshire. The man’s daughter was in another kayak.

Police say the man, identified as Bruce Phillips Sr., yelled for help and two nearby boaters responded; he was brought to shore and CPR was performed but he did not survive.

The cause of death is still being investigated.
