RI man, local woman, named as Gloucester victims

Posted: Updated:

GLOUCESTER, Mass. (AP) - Authorities have identified the two people who died after slipping into the ocean off the coast of Gloucester last weekend as a Rhode Island man and a local woman he and his wife had been visiting.

Police say David Machado and Kristen Mayo-Machado, of Providence, R.I., were visiting their friend, 46-year-old Evelyn Howe, on Sunday when the trio decided to take a walk on the rocky coastline of the city's picturesque Eastern Point.

Authorities say the 48-year-old Machado slipped from a rock into the 50-degree water and Howe went in after him in a rescue attempt.

When they didn't emerge, Mayo-Machado called 911. Gloucester police pulled the two bodies from the water about 40 minutes after that call. They were both declared dead at the hospital.
