Woman's body found in Boston Harbor

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) — Authorities say a 53-year-old Somerville woman apparently fell off her boat and drowned in the waters off East Boston.

Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel Conley says the preliminary investigation suggests that the woman, who had been living for the summer with her husband on their boat near Piers Park, fell into the water just after 5 a.m. Tuesday after the two spent a night out. Her husband went into the water to rescue her, performed CPR unsuccessfully, and called 911.

An external examination of the woman's body did not reveal signs of physical trauma. An autopsy is scheduled.

Her name was not released.

The man was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital for observation and treatment. He is expected to survive.

The scene is Massachusetts Port Authority property.
