ALTON, N.H. (AP) — An elderly boat operator was found unresponsive after his vessel went out of control on Lake Winnipesaukee on Sunday, officials said. Another boat operator discovered the man inside the 14-foot boat after it came to a strop and began drifting after performing a couple of fast circles in Alton Bay, officials said. Donald Longhi, 76, of Hooksett, New Hampshire, was transported to Concord Hospital-Laconia where he was pronounced dead, officials said. New Hampshire State Police Communications first received a report at 6:08 a.m. about a boat that at the time was initially believed to be operating recklessly. The incident remains under investigation.
