PIERMONT, N.H. (AP) – New Hampshire State Police say a 64-year-old man from Athol, Mass., has died 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, N.H. The man’s daughter was in another kayak.

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

Authorities did not release the man’s name.

An autopsy will be done Sunday to determine the cause of death.
