FRAMINGHAM – A Framingham teen, 16, has died, after being pulled from a Framingham pond this evening, May 26, said Framingham Deputy Police Chief Sean Riley
Police were called to Learned’s Pond via a 9-1-1 call at 6:13 p.m.,said Deputy Police Chief Riley.
Two teens were at the pond playing on a rope swing in the wooden area, next to the pond, when one teen used the swing to jump into the water, went under the water, and did not surface, explained police.
The other teen ran to a man on the beach, who called 9-1-1, said Deputy Police Chief Riley.
Our officers were at the beach within 1-2 minutes, said Deputy Police Chief Riley.
“One of our officers went into the water to pull him out,” said Deputy Police Chief Riley.
The officers performed CPR on him, until firefighters and EMT’s arrived on the scene, said Deputy Police Chief Riley.
The teen was alive when transported to MetroWest Medical Center in Framingham, said the deputy police chief earlier tonight, but Deputy Chief Riley told SOURCE the teen died at the hospital, after 7 p.m.
Police are not released the teen’s name tonight, as family is still being notified,
The deputy police chief said the Framingham teen, is new to the City, as he was not enrolled in any Framingham school.
Riley said the swing will be taken down tomorrow. It is believed to be on City property. It was not installed by the City. Swings have been erected and removed in that wooden area adjacent to the beach for decades.
“:As quickly as they (rope swings) come down, teens put another one up,” said Deputy Police Chief Riley.
The City’s beaches are not officially open for the season. The City provides lifeguards at the beaches typically from mid-June to mid-August.
There are signs at the beach that note it is open from dawn to dusk.
