Fisherman Rescued on Buzzards Bay

Emergency vehicles gather at Marion town landing

The Marion, MA, harbormaster’s office and Massachusetts EPO officers responded to a fisherman whose vessel was reported to be taking on water in upper Buzzards Bay.

The unidentified male was fishing alone off Marion when the propeller of his 20’ boat became tangled in the anchor line. The angler called 911 on his cell phone and gave his approximate location. He was soon transferred to a harbormaster’s boat and brought to the Marion town landing, where he was evaluated and released by medical personnel. The boat was towed to the Bourne Marina where the man had launched earlier in the day.
