On-board accident claims fisherman

A 60-year-old fisherman from Rowley died Thursday after an accident aboard a fishing vessel off the town’s shores, local harbormasters confirmed. Harbormasters Rosemary Lesch and Scott Story said they responded along with a crew from U.S. Coast Guard Station Gloucester to a call reporting an accident on board the 42-foot Intuition in Sandy Bay around 8:30 a.m. Story said it appeared that the man had been struck by an object on the boat while working. Both he and Lesch declined to elaborate further, and they did not identify the victim. click here to read the story 10:24
