Shortly before 2:00 PM (Aug. 24) this afternoon, Edward Kimball, 24, of Manchester, Maine drowned following a swimming-related incident off Pond Road near the outlet of Cobbosseecontee Lake.

Maine Game wardens say Kimball may have suffered health related complications while swimming. The incident did not involve a watercraft.

Kimball’s body was recovered quickly in eight feet of water and about 40 feet from shore. Lifesaving measures were performed by first responders, but efforts were unsuccessful.

Both Manchester and Winthrop Fire Departments, as well as State Troopers, assisted.
