CAMDEN, Maine (AP) — The father of Olympic snowboarder Seth Wescott has died in a boating accident in Maine.
The Maine Warden Service Tuesday night recovered the body of James B. Wescott, a retired Colby College track and field coach, from Megunticook Lake in Camden.
Wardens say the 71-year-old was in a single person sculling boat around 8 a.m. Tuesday when he fell into the water and failed to resurface. He’d apparently suffered a medical emergency. Divers found his body about 12 hours later.
