Raftapalooza marked by storm clouds, medical emergency

Posted: Updated:

Police have released the name of the man who died at the Raftapalooza event Saturday in Colchester.

Video from the fire department of the gathering at Thayer Beach shows stormy weather was starting to kick-up. First responders urged the flotilla of boats and rafts to break up and get people out of the water.

During that time a flare was fired, alerting authorities to a man in distress. He was brought to shore in cardiac arrest, and was pronounced dead at the hospital. Police Monday identified him as 56-year-old Thomas Leggett of Milton.
