Fatal Drowning in Westchester County

Late last month in Pound Ridge, NY a White Plains resident was attempting to service a water pump on Blue Heron Lake when he fell out of his canoe.

Unfortunately the man was unsuccessful in holding onto his canoe, and drowned. The man was part of a landscaping crew attempting to install an irrigation pump for a private residence on the lake.
