Enfield boy drowns in Mascoma Lake

Enfield, New Hampshire - July 12, 2011

A 12-year-old boy has drowned in Mascoma Lake.

Rescue crews were called to Mascoma Lake in Enfield, N.H., Tuesday afternoon, when Christopher Pierce of Enfield went under and did not come back up. His friend ran home and called 911.

A DHART helicopter helped with the effort.

"We initially had boats in the water from the Lebanon and Enfield fire departments, as well as DHART assisted us with their helicopter to do a search, and we had volunteers that went in the water swimming to see if they could see anything," Enfield Police Chief Richard Crate said.

Crews found the boy's body just before 6 p.m. Tuesday.
