A man drowned Wednesday, August 3, 2016, while fishing in a pond in Alton, New Hampshire.

Two men were reportedly fishing Wednesday morning when their canoe tipped and one of the men went overboard. The other man called 911 after being unable to rescue him.

A New Hampshire Fish and Game dive team responded and searched the pond and found the man’s body roughly seven hours later. Officials have not released his name.
