ORLEANS, Mass. (AP) — A man has drowned during lifeguard tryouts in a Cape Cod lake.
The Cape Cod Times reports the man slipped beneath the surface of Pilgrim Lake just before 9 a.m. Saturday.
Rescue crews brought him to shore about a half an hour later and tried to resuscitate him. He was taken to Cape Cod Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Police haven’t yet released the man’s age or identity.
Police say the man was taking part in annual lifeguard fitness tests for summer lifeguard positions at Nauset Beach.
The investigation is ongoing.
