MIDDLESEX, Vt. (AP) - Vermont State Police say a Montpelier man drowned at the Wrightsville Reservoir in Middlesex over the weekend.

Police say 42-year-old Jason S. Reed was pulled under water by the current near the waterfall at the base of the dam on Saturday.

Police say he and family members and friends had paddled up river in canoes where some members of the group started swimming in the basin below the waterfall.

Family members were able to pull Reed from the water. He was taken to Central Vermont Medical Center in Berlin, where he was pronounced dead.
